Right....I think I owe you guys an update as to where I stand at the moment, I will be signing with Harmonia Mundi in March 2009 so that's one less thing to worry about, but my father now got the crazy idea into his head that now that I will be earning a fair amount of money I could help everyone in the family out to pay of their mortgages, pay their bills and whatnot...I simply do not agree and as a consequence my parents and me at the moment are not on speaking terms.

I am currently in Oberhausen, was in Vienna up untill this morning, I will be conducting Bach's Weihnachts-Oratorium this weekend, and Händel's Messiah in Amsterdam next week and on December 24th.

All of this does take me away from my knitting but I try to knit whenever possible because far be it from me to dissapoint my spoilee.

Anyway, if I do not find the time to come back before Christmas I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a very very very merry Christmas and all the best for 2009!!!

Congratulations on the signing! Great to hear about your conducting as well. I would just ignore the requests for money, let them earn their own! Merry everything to you!!


Edited - first read as singing!

Jason, congratulations on your signing with HM!
Didn't realize that you conducted as well. Both pieces are awesome, and I have performed in portions of each.

Here's hoping that your relationship with your parents can return to normal without any financial strings attached.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

Kudos! What size needle do you conduct with?

Veni, vidi, kniti.

Isn't it a bit rude to ask a man the size of his baton?

Congratulations and Merry Christmas to you too!!!!

I can relate to the family issues. Ever since I graduated from optometry school in 1997, various family members have been sticking their hands out! I have informed them that the First National Bank of Shawn is now closed!!!! (My partner and I have our own debts we would like to pay off.)

Again, congratulations and Merry Christmas!!!!
