After that, I'd love to have gig full time with a brass quintet, or a tuba quartet. Never have to deal with conductors, having real input into the musical product and kind of selecting my own gigs & venues. I love playing brass quintets. The repertoire is so much fun & challenging. I don't think I'll ever get tired of playing "Just a Closer Walk" or "Ain't Misbehavin." there are some serious works I like, too, Ewald, Arnold, duBois, Renwick "Dance," and others. I miss the old SJSBQ+1.
As much as I love sitting next to Phil, and see my friends at symphony, soloing and chamber music is really where it's at for me, musically.
