Uh oh, LONG post ahead 🤭
So, there’s getting to be a lot of you (and even more every day), but I do see many of the same names engaging with me. I’d like to give you an opportunity to get to know me better as well as an opportunity for me to get to know you!
Who am I?
I’m Jon Olejnik, a 30-year-old woodwind doubler who specializes in modern woodwinds, early music woodwinds, and world folk winds. I play over 30 instruments and own more instruments than ANYONE should. I attended Florida State University for jazz saxophone performance. I’m my professional career I’ve worked as lead alto/woodwinds for Bernadette Peters’ orchestra, played reeds for the North American Broadway National Tour of “My Fair Lady”, performed with legendary drummer Jimmy Cobb (last living musician from Miles Davis’ album “Kind of Blue”), and I’m currently on tour with The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra. I’ve had the great opportunity of traveling the world playing music: my favorite country I’ve been to through my work is Australia (New Zealand is a tie). I’m an endorsed artist and clinician with D’Addario Woodwinds (daddariowoodwinds). My favorite color is Green and I’m a BIG fan of cinnamon rolls. My favorite instrument to play is Bassoon and I’m not a fan of math at all. if you made it this far, CONGRATULATIONS! 🎉🎊🎈
OKAY- whew, my fingers are bruised 😝
Now tell me about yourself! I see you checking out my posts and I want to know more about you and what makes you unique!
