Now that Christmas break is fast approaching, I have to figure out my next moves. I am hoping that I am granted an audition at a few of the places I have applied. Competition/audition application and travel expenses are not for a financially-strained graduate student such as myself! Yet, I still feel that even if I don't receive the results I am looking for, it is important that I continue to apply for these opportunities. Being an 'artist' is by no means a just 'sing and relax' career. (At least for me it hasn't been.) Actually a person needs to be pretty business-minded to succeed. I've been learning this as I progress through the academic track. All of my experiences hopefully will bring me closer to my dream: a sustainable performance career!!
Merry Christmas and a Blessed Holiday Season!!
