In a freak occurrence of red tape, I will be attending boot camp for a SECOND TIME as I transition from the Naval Academy Band to the Army Band (Pershing’s Own).
I’m happy to report that my last artistic activity before signing off was a complete honor and a pleasure: performing with Liz Ames in the premiere of Greg Wanamaker’s new work for saxophone and piano, “of Light and Shadows,” at the Navy Band 38th International Saxophone Symposium. Greg and Liz are both class acts, and I look forward to working with them again soon.
In other news, Cliff Leaman and Joe Rackers gave the first performance of the new Global Premiere commission from Baljinder Sekhon. It’s been amazing watching this project take off.
I look forward to grabbing the torch again in early April: can’t wait to be a musician again!
