Hey Everyone! I'm excited to keep you all informed on whats going on with myself and Simply Three on this blog! We have a lot of exciting opportunities and we can't wait to share them with you. I'm not much of a blogger but I hope that at least some of the posts I write will be interesting and possibly help others in whatever they are pursuing. With that in mind, let me tell you about some exciting events coming up!
We recently have been performing for a lot of high schools. Doing this has benefited us in many ways. We get to perform regularly, hundreds of people have heard our music, and we have been getting CONNECTIONS! One connection that has happened recently is with Dr. Alex Zheng, conductor of orchestras at Perry High School. He invited us to perform as a part of his orchestras concert at Perry Hugh School, which was very fun. After we were done warming up for the concert he approached us with an offer to solo with the Chandler Symphony in September. It just so happens that he is on the board of directors and also the assistant conductor of the Chandler Symphony! We are scheduled to perform with the Chandler Symphony on their concert September 6, 2013 (MARK YOUR CALENDARS). Not only do we get a chance to perform at the awesome Chandler Center for the Arts, but we will be able to reach a group of people that we wouldn't have been able to if it wasn't for the connection with Dr. Zheng. He made it happen! AND! Hopefully by playing this concert, we will make more connections! This all happened because we put ourselves out there and made a connection. You don't have to be the best in the world at something to get great opportunities. You have to work hard and let people know what you are doing. Give people a chance to help you, there are many people out there that want to! You just have to let them know what you are doing.
I could go on and on about other great stories but I don't want to waste all my material on one blog post. I promise there will be more to come!
