“Practice hard, stay yourself, ask yourself why you make music and embrace challenges with a smile.”  – Annelien Van Wauwe


The winter winds are blowing cold outside, but inside the winds are warm and wonderful.  This week, some of the best women woodwind players recording today.  Single reeds, double reeds, and flutes – all of them make an appearance on this episode.
