    International Double Reed Society conference 2008:

    Anyone else going? I'll be performing Tuesday afternoon with the "Georgia Double Reed Ensemble" (a quartet) on oboe d'amore and bassoon.

    I've been to a number of conferences by various instrumental organizations, and for my money the IDRS takes the cake. The conferences are large, well-planned, and well-attended by lots of major players, pedagogues, scholars, and vendors.

    And a bonus for me this year: BYU is my alma mater.

    I would encourage all young woodwind doublers to attend this if you can. The music business is so difficult today that success is at best a crapshoot. The best chance for success is to be fluent on as many woodwinds as possible. Start now.
