Hi Everyone, I hope everything is going well for you. With all the bad things happening around the world I find that we need arts and music a lot more these days. That said...I'll try to play my part.  New things coming up: MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL CLINICS On November 8-9, I'll be working with Kenyon Brenner, Mike Conrad, and Shawn Williams at the Thompson School District's Jazz Retreat in Loveland, Colorado. We'll be working with middle/high school students' big bands for two days. Super exciting! SGLJO AT JEN 2018 The SGLJO is playing a concert at the Jazz Education Network Conference 2018, in Dallas, TX. Always exciting and fun to conduct my music with this incredible group of musicians. I have a new piece that will be premiered at this concert. The band for this concert is: Saxes:  Dave Pietro Adam Blakey Don Aliquo Kenyon Brenner Ryan Middagh Trumpets: Brad Goode Ron Parton Jeff Jarvis Clay Jenkins Trombones: Mike Conrad Paul McKee David
