  1. There should be a boatload of applications for this!

  2. Oh wow, I’m thankful that you posted this. I’m starting to look at Grad Schools for oboe performance and LSU was on my list as a possibility. Looks like I’ll need to keep an eye on who gets the position (and where Dr. Ryon heads to, if he keeps teaching).

  3. (Make that Professor Ryon- I’m always giving people accidental PhDs)

  4. Oh I’d like an “accidental PhD” too! Can you hand me one, please!? 😉

    Yep, time to keep an eye on that one if you are thinking of attending there, to be sure, Jaclyn!
