My DGD, (who sews, so perhaps a *little* on topic) is a bassoonist  
who want to be a professional musician.  This being her final year  
in high school, she is applying to colleges.  She has been accepted  
to three local colleges, Carnegie Mellon, and UT Austin, plus the  
two at the top of her list, Oberlin and Juilliard.

Hard decision, she consulted her bassoon teacher and several other  
musicians, friends, family,....

Two days ago, she finally committed.  Beginning this fall, she will  
be a Kovner Fellow at Juilliard.

'Ecstatic' does not even begin to describe my emotional state.

That is terrific, and a great choice.  I would have said Oberlin or  
Julliard......or Berklee, but her choice will do well by her future.

 Oh my Goodness!  If I could have chosen any place in the world, it would  
have been Juilliard. So happy for you all!  Polly

Hah! I would have said so, if I'd had to place a bet. I'm happy for her, and  
for you, too. Congratulations!

Wow, that is wonderful. A great off topic subject.  

My son played the bassoon in High school and college, I love the sound
of it.

I love it as well.  Almost every time I go to their house, DGD is  
practicing, and I never miss a recital or performance.

That is just so wonderful, I just can't think of anything better. I've  
always felt that Julliard is the pinnacle for a music. Congrats to DGD  
and all the family. You must all be flying high.
