Statement of Interest

I’m interested in serving Midsouth chapter of IDRS because I love prospect of being able to help improve my local double reed community. I believe in the mission of regional chapters to expand our community locally and help more double reed players than ever before. While maybe not on this scale, I have much experience in organizing, scheduling, and brainstorming new programs for different organizations throughout my life, and I would love to assist in the creation of new opportunities for engagement, education, and community for double reed players in my community. I would love the opportunity to assist in the beginning of and growth of the Midsouth chapter, incorporating the established events from MDRS and expanding them to create new ones. Whether that is in a role of the chapter’s Executive Board, or in another assistive way, I would love to be part of the growth of IDRS!
