Favorite Band Memory: Dave Bethel's cadenzas. Ruth Zimmerman's bassoon. Musically taunting the opposing band during football games with songs like "Rainchant." Switching clarinets for a parade when Julie Penna's instrument got broken. Marching a mile with my left shoe coming off. Dressing on the bus, in the car, and behind the bass drum. Carrying two sousaphones at once to help pack the truck. Playing "The Horse" (Have the music posted in my cube at L & I). Arranging my own score for District Orchestra. Comparing mood rings with Georgie Glessner. The day the lights went off in the bandroom and we all kept playing anyhow. And meeting a certain professional clown who has been a good friend for more than 30 years.
