First of all, I must apologize to anyone trying to reach me over
the past few months from the Klarinet list. I had a bout with
very poor health last semester after Vioxx was taken off the
market, and then this semester, I made up for it with 16
concerts so far this semester, which left me virtually unable to
read e-mail more than to check and flag messages on occasion,
knowing I would never have time to follow up on them.

Not eto Tom Henson...I will send you a detailed response to your
e-mail in a day or so. It might be WAY too late to be relevant,
but I will anyway.

Anyway, as I am finishing up this semester, I am faced with
quite a few decisions over the summer and fall semester in
relation to literature to work on this summer. I am going to try
to get clarinet lessons during the summer as much as I can from
as many possible places viable for doctoral work. I have a few
prospects, but am looking for others. I will have to narrow my
selection of places to audition down to 5 or less, because of
the enormous amount of requirements needed to apply for doctoral
studies, and the wide variance in requirements from program to
program. If anyone has a comprehensive list of college teachers
of note in the US and abroad, this would be VERY helpful, as I
pursued a few teachers over the past year and a few are moving,
retiring, etc...

One piece that has come up, which I have lost an uphill battle
of securing a copy of the sheet music and/or even my own copy of
the recording availble, is Concertino Pastorale by Allan
Stephenson, a South African composer. I looked through the
Klarinet archives, only to find links that, at one point, were
probably very helpful. Unfortunately, I can only find a few
references to his oboe concerto, and can't seem to get anywhere
with Eble, Luyben, Frank, or any other music house in the US to
secure this music. I am also interested in the orchestral part
availability, as I would like to use this piece to audition for
the concerto competition next fall for the orchestra scheduling.
Any help in finding this sheet music and/or the publisher's
current information would be extremely helpful. Thanks in

Next on my agenda is the Oklahoma Clarinet Symposium. Am I the
only one who can't seem to find a link to information for this
conference from Google,, or even the Oklahoma U
page (and also the OK Clarinet Studio page?) I may be spending
the summer in Kansas City, and would love to go, but can't find
out information about it. A link to this information would be
greatly helpful. I *did* see a reference to this conference by
someone at Oklahoma U. as I went through ***3700*** e-mails I
had been backlogged (which should tell you how long it has been
since the last time I had been an active online entity.) I
accidentally deleted this e-mail, and because there was so much
in my trash going through these e-mails, the e-mail wasn't
retained in the trash folder, and I couldn't retrieve it after I
accidentally deleted it. Also, I can't seem to get a good search
for the link that I saw in the e-mail through the klarinet
archives. Not sure why. I am usually VERY successful with the
archives, but they have been unhelpful for this link (as well as
current info about Allan Stephenson.)

One slightly off-topic anyone here going to the
IDRS Double Reed convention in Austin June 4-8? I would love to
meet some of you doublers out there...let me know!

Sorry for the ultra, business first, kind of letter. I look
forward to participating in the forum again on a regular basis
since I am a little more able to now.
