Several of you have expressed real interest in going, so Mr. Peterson and I are starting the serious recruiting NOW! We need to have 20 players committed by November, so even if you are already in college or university, please alert your fellow musicians to this tour. They can email me at Read More

I hope to hear from you very soon, even if you are just remotely interested!
