and we’re off

It’s 2013. I’m not doing resolutions per se, but I do have some goals. Here are the first three:

(1) Have one of my pieces performed in New York City. Any of the five boroughs will suffice, and it doesn’t have to be a premiere.

(2) I have acquired a nice euphonium (compensating and everything!), so I want to become a respectable jazz euphoniumist.

(3) I want to get one article from my dissertation prepped and accepted for publication. It may not actually get published this year, but it should be accepted before December 31, 2013.

How about you, readers? What’s on your plate for 2013?
