I’m clipping my nails short and getting ready for orchestra rehearsal tonight. My orchestra, Berklee Contemporary Symphony Orchestra, is playing its spring concert a week from today. I am getting excited. Being in an orchestra, to me, is still a privilege.
In other Jessica Berklee thoughts….
I applied for the Berklee achievement scholarship last week and am waiting to hear back from them. I had to compile a large portfolio to show them what I have accomplished since being a student. It was a lot of work and I hope it pays off.
I am entering the home stretch of this semester with only 4 weeks of regular classes left. I will be stressed, but its the stress of trying to finish well. This semester has been particularly arduous taking classes like counterpoint and tonal harmony on top of all my regular theory type classes. I know it will get harder later, but at that point I will have mastered the idea of these subjects. The hardest part for me is that I’ve never done them before. I am learning a lot and there’s no place I’d rather be.
I also recently, officially declared myself a film scoring major… I’m excited to see what the future holds.
On a closing note, Boston is so beautiful in the springtime…
