I have been playing bass trombone in the Grand Rapids Symphony and teaching in the West Michigan area since 1980. I feel fortunate that my passion for performing music is also my vocation. I have worked with many amazing musicians and performed scores of memorable performances over the years. However, the musical highlight of my career is the two weeks I spend each year at the Cabrillo Festival. It is the ultimate “summer music camp” that repeats each year! The great musicians, composers, and especially Marin make Cabrillo the greatest music festival on the planet! Thank you to the people of Santa Cruz for all of your incredible enthusiasm and support of the Cabrillo Festival!
