Yeah, bad pun. Sorta sorry. Sorta not! ;-)

I ran across the audition announcement. that includes three different positions for oboists. Guess I should post this on my audition page, eh? I have not been keeping up with that page at all, and I ‘m thinking aobut nixing it entirely, but we’ll see.

It was fun to see the English horn rep; I’ve played all of these works. Most I’ve played more than once. I’ve played the works on the oboe rep pages as well, although I’ve not played first oboe on most of them. I’ve sure had a wonderful career, getting to play so many wonderful works!

And no, I’m not going to audition. 1) I wouldn’t win 2) I’m too lazy!

Here is the rep for EH (you can see the oboe rep by going here):
