Upcoming Performances

I wanted to drop a quick post on a few recent performances and a couple to watch out for.

In the past week I have performed with the UMKC Saxophone Studio at the North American Sax Alliance Conference in Lubbock, Texas and the Kemper Museum in Kansas City. It was great to catch up with old friends at the conference and all of the performances were fantastic. If you haven't visited the Kemper Museum, check out their great collection of modern art.
