Whirlwind in the Windy City

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:

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!
