A couple of days ago, my friend did an amazing thing. I mean, it wasn’t a one day thing. It took months of work, patience, baked goods and skill to pull off something like this.
Jason completed his first of two conducting recitals for his graduate degree. He got musicians together, rehearsed them, his wife Melissa baked them treats for their time. I sat in awe as these musicians rocked out. They played Hindemith for crying out loud.
And at the front of the room was Jason. Jason, who didn’t even look like he was breaking a sweat (and it was really hot in there). Congratulations Jason. You have a well-deserved break coming your way. You could tell the musicians really respected you and your work.
