Back from China

I returned from China on Friday 11.11.11. Waking up in Beijing and returning to Ashland all in the same day made my 11.11.11 40 hours long. Best way to recover from jet-lag– schedule a concert. The Cascade Clarinet Consort had its premiere concert on Monday. The shared concert with the Siskiyou Saxophone Orchestra made for some great photographs.

I had the morning free in Beijing before teaching so I walked to a shopping mall.

I visited SOU alums Eric and Erin at Huijia school in Beijing where they are teachers. Erin studied saxophone with me and was on the 2007 SSO tour to China. It was good to see her again and meet Eric. They have become excellent teachers, loved by both students and colleagues.
