Music has a way of bringing people together and it has been my mission to share music with the world. This is my ninth season serving as Music Director of the Symphony of Southeast Texas living here in the charming community of Beaumont, Texas. In addition to my work here in Beaumont I also serve as the Principal Pops Director for the New Haven Symphony Orchestra in Connecticut. The great composer Johann Sebastian Bach was quoted as saying that “The aim and the final end of music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul”. This website, my concerts and the community outreach that is so important to me, is to serve the community and ultimately to transform the world through music. Thank you for stopping by!
