2009 IDRS Conference in Birmingham, UK
From July 19-26 I visited Birmingham, England to attend the International Double Reed Conference. The IDRS conference is held during the summer once a year, each time in a different location throughout the world. This year’s event in Birmingham marked the first conference in the UK for 20 years and was a terrific success. In addition to performing at this year’s conference, I assisted in the videography of performances and master classes for publication on IDRS.org, the website of the International Double Reed Society for which I serve as assistant editor. Look for the new videos soon at http://www.idrs.org/multimedia/.
