Hi Grace,
I'm just curious about whether you plan to finish this piece or not. I haven't heard from you yet. Let me know what I can do to help,

Hi Grace, I'll be your mentor. Welcome! I think that you should rework this music for the instruments Erik mentioned. I will mentor you either way, but if you choose from that list you will be considered for the concert. Are you a string player? Do you know whether this music would be easy or hard to play on a violin?
I look forward to hearing from you. Once you have chosen your instruments we can really get rolling.

Dear Grace,
Thanks for posting the first version of your piece for string trio. I don't know who your primary mentor will be, but I'm writing to let you know we don't have strings available for Opus 33. We have 2 trumpets, French horn, trombone, tuba, piano, 2 percussionists and four singers. With some adjustments you could make this a piece for three brass instruments, but that's between you and your mentor. Please let us know if you have questions. We want you to succeed with this piece.

Best wishes,
Erik Nielsen
Senior Mentor
