It's my first year participating in this event and I have submissions entered in three categories. I'm excited to report that I won first place in two of them and they'll be entered into the national competition which will be held later in the year!
I was first place in Original Song and World/Ethnic Instrumental Performance. I also submitted an entry in Inspirational Poetry, but did not place.
I know this isn't the Avery Fischer Prize or anything -- It's restricted to participation by military veterans enrolled in the VA Health Care Network -- but I'm thrilled to be a part of it. I was looking at some of the national winners from last year, and found the art to be both moving and very impressive.
My song entry is "The Bird Song" and my performance entry is "Vision", an improvasory work for Native American cedar flute.
Details are listed on my schedule of events on my home page. Hope to see you there!
This blog is about music, health, challenges, determination and personal and professional growth. I hope it is useful.
