The new year has brought about many exciting opportunities! After closing down a magical run of West Side Story, I've continued to stay busy. The USNA Chamber Winds recently performed a recital which included brass quintet playing; I'm preparing to play Cabaret, my favorite show, at USNA; later this week, I'm traveling to San Antonio to play with the Copper Street Brass at the Texas Music Educators Conference. All of these opportunities along with other gigs make me very thankful but keep me very busy. 2016 is off to an exciting start!
