Guest Conductor @ Midwest

72nd Annual Midwest Band & Orchestra Clinic.

I’ll be guest conductor with the fantastic University of Kentucky Jazz Ensemble @ one of the year’s largest music education / music publisher conferences.

They’ll be performing my brand new work, composed expressly for this occasion, Miles’ Big Band Dojo. They’ll also be performing my arrangements of My Funny Valentine and Bohemian Rhapsody.

Should be a fun hang!
