"I've had the pleasure of being an endorser for RS Berkeley woodwinds since 2009. My prized RS Berkeley piccolo is a truly great player, since having used it to play many very tricky and demanding piccolo parts, including that from the show George M! This piccolo has come through for me every time with excellent response, precise mechanisms and a beautiful sweet and rich sound."
My unique career path as a musician continues to be very fulfilling and extraordinary. From performing in polka bands, the National Symphony Orchestra of Ecuador, playing the national anthem on solo saxophone for the opening of a Boston Celtic's game in the Boston Garden, touring with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra in the lead alto sax/clarinet role, entertaining for Governor Dukakis' holiday party at the state house, playing on the Disney Magic for it's transatlantic inaugural voyage, to recording for the Lincoln Center Archives, I'm so glad that I chose this path and so grateful for all of the wonderful music and musicians it has brought into my life.
