Hi Audrey

Hi Audrey,
I so enjoyed meeting and hanging out with you in Williamsburg. I haven't laughed that much in a long while. I'm really looking forward to listening to you play; perhaps one day I'll get to hear you in person. Your Nephew Yeti sends his love. :)

Hi Audrey,

I am part of a saxophone/harp duo in the UK and would love to play your arrangements of the 3 romantic pieces. Is it possible to send me an electronic copy so that I don't have to pay large shipping and tax charges?

wow you're a great sax player! i'm going to be playing my senior piece this year and I was wondering if you could tell me where I can find Rudy Wiedoeft tribute arrangements for Wind Orchestra because I would love to play Saxarella but I can't find the music for the Band anywhere. Could you please help me? I love you're album, please keep playing!!!

Hello Audrey-Glad to find your website. Last week I was in the DC area to visit relatives, Kent Ashcraft is my cousin, his dad and mine were brothers from central Arkansas. I am a retired band director and sax/clarinet/flute player, do some private teaching, am now assisting with the band program in a small rural school about 15 miles away. Play in a dance band (on bari) and with a sax quartet in the Dallas area (on tenor), but alto is my main horn. Also direct the adult choir and handbells at the Presbyterian Church here in Bonham, TX, about 70 miles NNE of Dallas. Retired from Bonham HS after 18 years here and 34 years total. Enjoyed your performances on the web and will listen to more as I have time.


July 14, 2009

I love your new CD, some very tasteful, elegant playing. I wondered where I could find the Rudy Wiedoeft tribute arrangements for Wind Orchestra. Could you please tell me the publisher. Thank you. Ben

Hi Audrey, Not sure if you'll remember me. I think we overlapped at ESM by 1 year. I remember as a freshman tubist playing Rhapsody in Blue with Robert Spillman and Don Hunsberger and just being amazed at your playing. Glad things are going so well for you and happy to see such kind words from Al Gallodoro, a good friend of my wife's and mine. Great website by the way!Would love to hear from you. Cheers! Gary
