This is Chris's debut as a conductor! For one of his classes he had to conduct a piece for a professional brass band. The picture quality isn't fabulous but it is the only we got. The piece went really well and his professor thought he did a good job. It looks like after Christmas Chris might start conducting an ensemble on a regular basis.
On a side note I have a job interview tomorrow (Friday) with the Newcastle City Council. It is only part-time but could be a place to start.
We are in serious countdown mode until we are in Atlanta - 1 week, 5 days! We will see everyone soon! Early Merry Christmas!
