Summer 2013 was full of great repertoire!  Columbia Summer Winds had a thrilling season planned, with performances all over Manhattan.  In addition, I was the conductor at the Young Musicians’ Summer Academy in Caroline County, Maryland.   That summer was my last as a full-time New Yorker,  as left to start my DMA in wind conducting at Arizona State University with Gary Hill.  It was an incredibly bittersweet time!
