I am super proud of everyone who played at the Tallahassee Breezes Members’ Recital today! Many stepped outside of their comfort zones, conquered their stage freight, and performed a solo/chamber work (possibly for the first time in years) with great zeal and musicality. It’s obvious that a lot of work went into it and I could not be happier with everyone’s performance! There is so much talent in this group and I’m glad we were able to show that off. Congratulations on a job well done!

Long Time No Type!

It sure has been a while since I’ve updated!  A lot has happened since December 11, 2017!

February was a busy month with work, Addams Family, and a Tallahassee Winds concert.  I had the opportunity to play the Reed 2 (flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, soprano sax, tenor sax) book for the FSU Theatre production of The Addams Family.  The book was a lot of fun to play, the music was great, the show was hilarious, and the cast was absolutely fantastic!  Probably one of the best pit shows I have done so far in my lifetime.  

Holiday Concert

Tallahassee Breezes will be giving a free holiday concert on Tuesday, December 12th and Sunday, December 17th.  Both concerts start at 7pm.  The first concert is at Mulligan Park, a new retirement community in Tallahassee, and the second concert is at Westminster Oaks. If you are available, stop by for an hour of fun!

Breezes with the Winds

Tallahassee Winds had their opening concert for the 2017-2018 season on Tuesday, September 26th. We welcome Julia Baumanis as the Graduate Guest Conductor for this semester.  She’s doing a great job in creating balance within the ensemble and extracting musical shape and nuance from the players.

Tallahassee Breezes Debut

Tallahassee Breezes, the Tallahassee Clarinet Choir, had its debut concert Monday, August 28, 2017 at Westminster Oaks.  It was an evening filled with music and educational tidbits ranging from music, composers, and the various clarinets.  We had a great crowd and the choir (and our guest percussionist) played wonderfully.
