Last night, I had the privilege to conduct the Bowie HS WInd Ensemble on my piece, “Dusk.” They performed beautifully, especially considering the fact that we only had two rehearsals! It was wonderful to hear their entire concert – they play startlingly well, and I am honored that their director, Bruce Dinkins, invited me to be a part of their final concert of the Fall!
The horn section in particular rocked – solid, balanced, gutsy sound throughout the section:
I wish I’d gotten a picture of the whole band, but didn’t manage to. So, imagine a great group of truly stellar high school musicians smiling at you!
Thanks again to Bruce and the staff at Bowie High School, and of course the band – I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, and perhaps we can work together again soon? 😉
