New Job!

I’m pleased to announce that this fall, I will be joining the faculty of Hastings College as Visiting Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Bands. In addition to directing the band, I will be teaching music history, and high brass. I'm very much looking forward to moving back to Nebraska, and teaching at this great institution.

New additions to the website! 

Click on listens to check out a few audio clips...more on the way (especially as I begin to record my CD).

Also, there's a video from our performance of the Stravinsky fanfare at the Vail International Dance Festival. Enjoy! 

Vail

I'm having a blast in Colorado!  The Flatirons Brass Quintet sounds great, and it's a pleasure to fill in with them, and play with my dear friend Derek McDonald again! We opened the Vail International Dance Festival with Igor Stravinsky's "Fanfare for a New Theatre," which he wrote for the New York Ballet. Playing this incredible piece with Derek in front of a couple thousand people was one of the funnest performances I have ever had! Here are a couple pictures...

New Website

Hey all, 

As you can see, my new website is up and running!  I think I've got all the bugs worked out...if you see anything odd, please let me know!

Thanks to Squarespace, for their awesome web services...also thanks to my dear friend Shelby Lewis for the new headshots, as well as Michael Sheffer for the background image of my trumpets.
