This rejection is from a few months ago, and ironically I kind of wonder if I should be posting it because I just submitted a new application. Oh well.

March 9 rejection

I knew I was receiving this rejection letter because they hadn’t asked me to fly out to New York City and meet them, so ultimately I decided to fly myself out to Washington D.C. instead for a performance. Totally worth it.

The Ferry Crossing will have its Midwest premiere as part of the 2017 TUTTI Festival at Denison University on Thursday, February 9 at 7 p.m. In fact, I will be on the same program as Augusta Reed Thomas (since she’s their guest composer). Chances are, she probably doesn’t remember me.
