<p>Hello everyone</p>

<p>I was accepted to do auditions in Mannes (March) and I really need your help. I'm from Portugal and I'm going to USA to do auditons to some universities in the first two weeks in February (UNT, Boston conservatory and I hope Northwestern University). I'm really worried because New York is a big place but with so many great musicians that I don't know if I have place for me. I need to work as an accompanist ( I have a lot of experience) to cover my expenses and also I'm looking for opportunities to perform. If I decide to go, I have to buy a flight ticket so I really bave to be sure that I will get anything.</p>
