While not ‘research’ in the traditional sense, I find every day in the practice room to be an exercise in searching for answers – trying to discover and achieve the next levels of technical and musical refinements to enable my performance, and that of my students, to live up to the very best the horn can offer.
There are too many great memories to list them all, but between four seasons with the Rochester Philharmonic, two with Symphoria, two with the Wichita Symphony, and one with Symphony S.O.N.G., some favorites include performances of Mahler’s 2nd and 5th, Sibelius’s 5th, Barber’s Violin Concerto, Brahms’s 4th, Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra, Stravinsky’s Petrushka, and live performances of the 3 original Star Wars trilogy films!
