So as mentioned in my last update I was looking into creating a wind symphony. Lucky for me, there's been quite a bit of support! I have about 30 musicians who want to join (still need a dozen or so more) and I've found donors!

The cool bit is that if I calculate JUST the donations that have been guaranteed and add in the projected revenue from ticket sales, then we will beat our budget by $2,500! That's an extra 2.5k we can use to pay for all rehearsals for next year, it will lighten our load and give me the opportunity to really start investing in some good equipment.

If you are interested in supporting the Houston Wind Symphony, we are currently working out a fiscal sponsorship contract with Fractured Atlas (an awesome nonprofit that helps out other non profits) so that all donations are tax deductible. If you don't care about tax deductions and just want to help, then visit houstonwindsymphony.org and click on the support page. Everything counts, $5, $10, $15, it's all needed!

I'm an old school classical musician, I have lots of hobbies and know more than I should about almost everything. I'm a proud atheist simply because I can not believe in a deity without verifiable proof. I don't care to try and 'convert' anyone, I only debate when invited to do so by the other party so I am not forcing my 'beliefs' on others. I currently hold a B.A. in music with a minor in education and a Texas EC-12 music certification (I can teach music to all levels of student). I am taking a year and a half to continue practicing, get some bills paid, and audition to another music school for my Master's in Music performance. I also co-own a small audio recording business with a friend.

Likes: rational thought, well supported claims, bacon, talking with people, music, learning, cooperation, science, philosophy.

Dislikes: ignorance, blind faith in intangible things, onions, peas, being hit by vehicles, unwarranted disrespect.

keep telling me when you post stuff or want me to review progress in current work. I'm always happy to sit and look through things, it gives me something to do :D.
