I don’t know what I was thinking on the Flower Duet, Mike Tysons’ Dance Punch Out, and other projects I’ve been doing over the years. I know why I did them, but in hindsight I wish I stopped to think about the 5-year-plan. If my goal in life has been to one day have my own orchestra, then I need to keep going in that direction. Sure, I was dealt a detour but that doesn’t give me an excuse to give up.
Moving forward - I’m throwing everything I have towards my orchestra dream. I need to be smarter with my business and music licensing skills. I need to skate to where the puck is headed rather than where it is right now.
In a few days I’m going to announce a new project that I have been working on. I hope it will create orchestra jobs, prove a sustainable income for composers, and allow for audience development between me and my community. This is bigger than me, and that’s why I need to keep on going and give this a shot.
