The 1990's

 The Symphonic Period:  Various projects with orchestras in Cleveland, Atlanta and beyond. The era culminated in a series of projects with Brothers Rob Gibson, Wynton Marsalis and Jazz@Lincoln Center, the NYC Ballet, the New York Philharmonic, the Film Society of New York. The largest of these projects was "ALL RISE" which premiered at Avery Fisher Hall for the Millenium and subsequently toured to some of the world's greatest orchestras before being recorded by the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

1960's (The Ancient Days)

 I was a Child and she was a Child...  The halcyon days of my youth. I was convinced that if I stared long enough out across the shores of Lake Erie I would see Hawaii (This was pre-geography class, of course).
