I wanted to let everyone know that I have been accepted into Western Michigan University’s MM in choral conducting program. I am looking forward to beginning my tutelage under the incomparable Dr. Kimberly Adams. That is the extent of my future plans as of right now. I’m very thankful for God’s leading.
Some of you might be thinking, doesn’t he already have a master’s? My first MM was in Voice Performance. It has served me well for the past few years, but I would like to go further in the choral music field. I am hoping this new master’s will polish my conducting skills as well as open up more opportunities.
Besides, my family collects master’s degrees. I will be tied with my sister-in-law, and my brother still wins the degree count with a whopping three master’s degrees. That’s right, he went for an educational hat-trick. Maybe when I get a DMA, I’ll finally beat him. . .
