Some people ask me if I still receive rejection letters. I do, just not as many as I used to, mainly because I don’t apply to as many competitions nowadays.
But I think I’ve achieved a new accomplishment: receiving rejection letters from competitions I didn’t apply to.
Take this email: I don’t think I actually applied to this one, but I truly can’t tell you if I applied or not. Maybe I did, maybe I didn’t.
Truth be told, I’d love to write for wind quintet, but I probably wouldn’t know what I’m doing. (Don’t tell my students.)
