While summer should include some rest and relaxation it can also be a time, for those of us in academia especially, to get some big things done. My big project this summer is to learn Maki Isshi’s Concertante for a trip later this summer to Japan. I’ve always wanted to learn and perform this work and since I’m going to Japan I’m going to find a way to make it happen! If you want, check out the PATV below which addresses summer opportunities, and leave some thoughts for the DC community. Do you have any big projects that you want to complete this summer? Going to any percussion related seminars?
