Recent Invitations

I've accepted two invitations for appearances recently. The first will be on June 6. In New York, in the Bronx, is a cable network called Bronxnet. They'll be presenting a program that honors New York Philharmonic emeritus percussionist Arnie Lang. Arnie is also a Hall of Fame member of the Percussive Arts Society, so I'll be representing PAS at the event.

The other invitation is to be a member of a panel discussion at PASIC in November. The PAS Education Committee is hosting a panel discussion entitled "Building a Powerhouse Percussion Program." I am so honored and humbled that the members of the committee have asked me to be part of the panel. Of course I'm very proud of what we've been able to accomplish here at Northern Illinois University, and it's really special to be recognized this way for the fun we've had building and maintaining our program.
