Mogrelia turns 50

November 14, 2008

I’m flying up to San Francisco to celebrate our good friend and colleague Andrew Mogrelia’s 50th birthday. Andrew conducts internationally and is a professor of conducting at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. It will be fun to see all my SF friends again and it’s a great town to visit (my heart belong not to SF, but to LA).

Yesterday in class I gave my students a reality commercial about ways that people can earn a living and having music be a part of it. A little shot of reality is always a good thing for freshmen, especially if they are on the fence as to whether continue as a music major.
