Tubby the Tuba Performance Scheduled

Just received word that I will be performing George Kleinsinger’s “Tubby the Tuba” with the Lufkin Community Band next semester!  Looking forward to  performing this timeless classic.  Thanks to David Smith for the invite!


Studio Recital II was just as great as the first one.  This one was extremely special because it was the first public solo performance for many of the incoming freshman students.  Congratulations to all and especially the many staff and student accompanists that worked hard!


Octubafest 2012
