Dear Dr. Oltman and Colleagues,
I am very grateful for your consideration of my application for the DMA in Conducting.
Below, you will find a series of videos of my conducting in various settings as well as a number of supplemental application materials that may be of interest to you. I hope these give a clear demonstration of my technical abilities, programming practices, and general musicianship in order for you to feel comfortable determining whether I am the right fit for Shenandoah. I wish you all the very best in this new year! Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or comments.
