Well, hello there blog! It’s been a little while. I’ve missed you. 🙂
So here’s some big news – I’ve applied for the position of Apprentice Conductor with Orchestra Toronto. It was announced last week and I started on my cover letter right away!
But as it turns out, the current music director for OT, Danielle Lisboa, is leaving. She’s moving to Edmonton, I hear. This puts a little kink in the plan of Apprentice Conductor – they will hold the applications until the fall once they [hopefully] have a new MD.
In any case, I’m super stoked about it! It’ll be a great opportunity for me to learn with an experienced conductor and get some hands-on time with a large orchestra – especially it being OT because I know so many people. The familiarity will make me really comfortable in auditions. And, if I get it, at the discretion of the director, I could conduct a piece in concert! Booyah! And all I’d be learning I’d be taking back to the Highlands Chamber Orchestra.
