During the course of this grant period, I have had the opportunity to create and to perform. These past few months have been fruitful, creative, and productive. I have met many people, both local and from other parts of the world and have enjoyed interacting with them. I have a lot of ideas of future projects, of ways I can grow not only for myself as a musician, but for the artistic community and Creative Pinellas in particular. I have enjoyed having the opportunity to show my work and to introduce myself to new audiences. I am especially looking forward to the lecture this week and the musical performance next week. However, my musical journey will not stop here. I will continue to write and perform locally, and hopefully outside the Bay area as well. I will network with band directors to create interest in my music for wind ensemble. I hope to find local singers who would rally in support of my choral requiem. I wish to have more pieces performed and recorded. I may return to school to further study composition. I will definitely attend more festivals and masterclasses. Whatever I do, you can follow me on social media, as I do post regularly.
