What a whirlwind!
I just returned from a two-day trip to Chicago to play at the Midwest Convention with the Lone Star Wind Orchestra
. We have been planning this trip for months, and with all the details worked out to a "T" by our fantastic leadership team, it was smooth sailing for a wonderful experience and truly memorable performance. Here are a few photos of the journey:
|My bassoon of eight years, affectionately named Nicki after my dear friend I have played bassoon with for the past 15 years since we started in 6th grade.|

|A man I greatly admire and have enjoyed playing under for over eight years: Eugene Migliaro Corporon.|
|My dear parents who traveled all the way to Chicago for the concert.|
|Plano East alumni and our wonderful Director of Bands from our East days.|
It is such an honor to play with the dedicated, talented members of the LSWO. The opportunity to play with this group is inspiring and motivating. Congratulations to everyone on a fantastic concert at Midwest!
Now to prepare for our upcoming concert at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas on January 27th: "Once Upon a Time." Hope to see you there!
