What I'm Doing Now
(This is my now page. You should make one too.)
I'm finishing up a week with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center. And today I get to perform a family concert for my wife and son!
I'm on the home stretch of my first semester at Shenandoah Conservatory. It has been awesome.
I'll be hosting the banddirector.com stream from Illinois SuperState next weekend. I'm looking forward to hearing of 30 of the best bands in Illinois!
Still plugging away with my two podcasts: TEM (138 episodes) and Brass Junkies (85 episodes)
What I'm reading: The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined - A good book with hundreds of pages of data showing that in spite of what it seems, violence is decreasing around the globe. A fascinating book so far.
What I'm listening to: Early Elton John. I've never given his music much of a chance due to not really digging his pop output from the last 20 years but holy moly is there some incredible albums from his early days!
What I'm looking forward to: The Berkshires in two months.
