After a number of years not playing in a performing ensemble, I am thrilled to be a member of the STLBB! I moved to St. Louis from Minneapolis in 1977. In the past I played with the St. Louis Philharmonic and the Compton Heights Band. I received an MS in Music Education from the University of Illinois. My Music Ed. BS is from the University of Minnesota. I was a band director in a suburban St. Louis school district before changing to a career in IT.
