I am so happy to share that I was called and offered a position at the AIMS Festival in Graz, Austria. The position was offered after one of the audition directors heard me play last year. Unfortunately, I will not be able to join them due to prior summer engagements.
You never know how your playing, past performances, failed auditions or any other number of engagements may affect you in later times. Always try your best and that will almost surely result in a positive outcome, be it in a victory, professional relations, or future engagements.
