The chamber version of Auto '66 is being performed today by both Dr. Julia Heinen (professor of clarinet, Cal. State Univ., Northridge) and by Technical Sgt. Ani Berberian and her colleagues in the U.S. Air Force Band in Washington, DC. I'll be stuck in Colorado, but I'm sure both will be great performances!
I'm very excited for two performances at the Southwest CBDNA Regional Conference at the Univesity of Arkansas. First up, the Truman State University Wind Symphony will perform Auto '66 with my friend and former classmate Jesse Krebs as soloist. Then on Friday, the Arkansas State University Wind Ensemble under the direction of Dr. Timothy Oliver will open their program with Two-Lane Blacktop. Plus, I'll be participating in the composer panels on both Thursday and Friday. Looking forward to meeting and working with some great colleagues both old and new!
