Good evening,

I thought I would write more frequently that I actually did this past Fall.  Some great updates, I have completed 15 credit hours toward my DMA in Choral Conducting.  I have learned so much and enjoyed my first semester as a student in almost ten years.  I even got to stand in front of the incredible Santa Fe Desert Chorale during their residency at UNT.  There just could not be a better time to be studying conducting at UNT.

I am scheduled to perform my first DMA Recital with my colleague and friend Brian C. Murray on March 1st at 6:30 PM in the UNT Recital Hall.  The UNT Conductors’ Chorus will be the choir and we plan to have some fantastic string players and soloists.  I will conduct the Missa Brevis in F, K. 192 and Brian will conduct the Missa Brevis in Bb, K. 275 both by Mozart.  I hope to see you there!

I have loved my four jobs – St. Philip Presbyterian Church Director of Music, Coppell Community Choir Artistic Director, UNT Graduate Assistant in the COM Development Office, and Voice Faculty Member at Marcus High School.  It has been a whirlwind, but quite fun!!  I have enjoyed getting to know so many new people!!

On Saturday one of my voice students and three of my former students at Coppell were selected for an All-State Choir.  I am so proud of them!!!

Tomorrow I start my Spring Semester provided that the weather cooperates.  It should be great fun.  I get to sing the Verdi Requiem as part of the UNT Grand Chorus.  I can hardly wait!!

I wish you all the best in 2018!

Josh
