Conducting Beautiful Music

The last year and a half has been pretty challenging for the music business so it’s nice to see things coming back. My father was the conductor of this band for the past 27 seasons - the longest running professional band (112 years) in the country. It’s filled with some of the top musicians in So. Cal. Unfortunately my dad passed away a little over a year ago so the city of Long Beach went through a long process of findings it’s next conductor. I think my father would be proud as I was named the new conductor a few weeks back. On a cool side note, the park at the end of Marine Stadium will be named after my father on August 26th and the band will perform under my baton - going to be an emotional night. It’s amazing when life comes full circle in a positive way!
