West Virginia All-State Band (February 28-March 2, 2013)
Had a wonderful time rehearsing and performing with these talented young musicians in Charleston, WV! Repertoire included John Adam’s “Short Ride in a Fast Machine”, “Molly on the Shore”, “His Honor” and two of my compositions; “With Each Sunset” and “In Perfect Silence, I Often Gaze at the New Stars”.
My heartfelt thanks to the West Virginia Music Educators Association and the West Virginia Bandmasters Association for the invitation. I also want to thank Tracey Filben and her colleagues for being such wonderful and supportive hosts during my stay.
Thanks to the students for such an emotional and moving performance in today’s concert!
