Looking forward to playing the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center this weekend. I'm happy that a lot of friends and family can make it to this one and am looking forward to the post-show hang! I just stumbled across this picture from my freshman year of college at the University of Maryland. Our student orchestra had the honor of performing alongside members of the NSO, including my teachers John Tafoya and Tony Ames (left). I remember playing Daphis and Chloe, but I'm not sure what else was on the program. I believe Emil de Cou conducted.
