My life work is to bring the joy of music to audiences around the world, and in so doing make the world a better place to live. Through educational programs, I have worked to introduce new musicians to the joy, discipline, and humanity of being a performing artist. It is my desire to perform, conduct, or teach on each of the 6 inhabited continents. I lack only one as of 2012!
