Event Calendar Working

I have had Google Calendar embedded as my event calendar for some time, but I have finally figured out why the “Upcoming Events” tools were not working. Now you can easily see the next several events in the sidebar and on the events page.

Aurora Symphony Season Ends

My second season with the Aurora Symphony Orchestra has come to a close. With the selection of Norman Gamboa as the music director, the season had a lot more consistency in sound and vision.

The end of the Masterworks season does not mean the end of performing, though! Keep an eye out for the ASO Brass Quintet performances that ramp up in the summer season.

Aurora Symphony has a new Principal Trombone

This should not come as news to anyone keeping up with the Events page, but I was offered the Principal chair of the Aurora Symphony Orchestra. It has been an exciting season so far, especially since the Music Director search has given us a different conductor for each concert. Join us for our final concert in May!

New Events

I am substituting with the Aurora Symphony for the opening concert of the 35th Anniversary season. There is a possibility for this to turn into a permanent position. Come enjoy the concert featuring Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4, Chausson Poeme, and Verdi La Forza Del Destino Overture. Visit the Projects/Events page for more details.

Jacobs Family Plus One

I am proud to announce the birth of my second daughter, Elizabeth Jacobs, on July 2, 2012! She is teeny tiny and it is so cute to watch her big sister experience having someone smaller than her. Mother and baby are both doing fine.
