This past fall I was honored to "fill in" along with Denny Stokes, as the conductor for the Mason Wind Symphony so that my good friend and colleague Mark Camphouse could take a well earned study leave.
We had a great time working with the Wind Symphony, exploring some new literature, working with two guest from China, and sharing some terrific concerts with the Rodney Mack Philadelphia Big Brass, and the McLean Symphonic Band.
You can see some of the photos from the fall semester above.
This semester, I am collaborating with Brian Walden and directing the Mason Symphonic Band. Our first concert is April 21 - the students are doing a great job! Come check it out!

Welcome! I am a percussionist, conductor and artistic leader who drinks a lot of coffee.
