I was at the Bands of America summer program concert at ISU and was wondering who was the soloist. I did not manage to grab a program but he played a wonderful lyrical selection. His musicality and sensitivity proved to be very inspritaional to all of the campers. Even woodwind players were touched by his phrasing and especially his extreme soft dynamics. He almost pulled the audience to the edge of their seats and then he soared into the extreme upper register. I know he is not the teacher at ISU, Il. But my reason for asking is because I would love to have him come out and work with my entire brass section on breathing and musicality. I am a high school band director in Il and was hoping he works around here.
