Hello and thank you for dropping by. Let me bring you up to date:

This past spring was a busy one for me. I gave solo performances of James Kazik’s Concerto for Trombone with the Indiana University Brass Choir; the premiere of James Stephenson’s “Three Bones” Concerto with Joseph Alessi, Jonathan Whitaker and the University of Alabama Wind Ensemble:

John Mackey’s “Harvest” Concerto with the University of Minnesota-Duluth Wind Ensemble and also premiered “Talking Winds,” a concerto written for me by Kevin Walczyk, with Northwestern University’s Symphonic Wind Ensemble.

I also had the privilege of recording Anthony Barfield’s “Invisible Light,” a work that was written for me in 2010 with the University of Alabama Trombone Choir. This was a particular joy for me as this was the commissioning school and director, Jonathan Whitaker.

I was honored to once again lead the Fellow Class at the 2013 Alessi Seminar…”The most important week in trombone.” This event changes lives and careers. To quote the title of Nick Saban’s book, “How Good do You Want to Be?” If you want to be good, the Alessi Seminar is essential.
