In 2016, I was hired, along with a few music colleagues of mine to provide entertainment for Jerry Springer’s Christmas Bash celebration at Rich Forum Stamford Media Center. It was nice to meet and work with Jerry.
I happened to get a copy of our set from that night and we released it. There are a few songs missing though. I am glad to call him a good friend.
It has been 4 years since Aunt Rosemary passed away. She always taught us: “To love what we do, to love each other, and love ourselves with complete and total abandonment.”
That lesson she taught me is how I live and breathe every single day.
On Sunday evening, March 9, 2018, the Drexel University Concert Band, under the direction of Dr. Wesley Broadnax, premiered “Reflections,” my first-ever major work for concert band. This was part of a CSCU grant I was awarded senior year.
Thank you to everyone for making this happen after two years of working on the piece in college. Thank you Dr. Mark Kuss for being my advisor for this project.
