I am will be playing with two very different musical groups this season. One is the Queen’s Community Orchestra, where I will be playing cello. I played cello in Christina Beekman’s summer Repertory Orchestra and also for the Handel’s Messiah this past Christmas, and I am excited about this further opportunity to improve my skills. The other group that I will be playing with this year is the Union Symphony Jazz Ensemble. I plan on playing flute and maybe clarinet or saxophone. Of course that means I have to learn how to play one of those instruments first. I think I would like to learn the clarinet first because it has the versatility of being both a great jazz instrument, and a classical instrument. Now I just have to take the leap and buy one!
