16 Things: Band leader strikes up a list of notable and entertaining events

I had the extremely rare and awesome opportunity to serve again under his baton a couple years ago ... he is THE reason that I choose to attend KU as we first met in 1987 at the Midwestern Music Camp.

When he introduced me to the University Band as a former student, I stood up and proudly said:
