One thing that you might mention is that a lot of women play
professioally in the various service bands in the DC area. One woman
that I know is at the US Naval Academy. She is the solo clarinetist,
(not concertmaster... she does not have the rank yet for that!)her
name is Linda Reeves. She is a wonderful player. Bio info may be
US Naval Academy Band
Annapolis, MD 21402
Sometimes it's cool for students to understand that not all people who
make their living playing are in the major orchestras.
Good luck, and thanks for the Web sight.
