Performance: Sarasota Orchestra’s Pop Series concert “Broadway Bound”
Hometown: St. Petersburg
If you could be anything other than a musician: I would be a landscape architect.
What’s your least favorite sound: My neighbor’s birds. They constantly imitate everything I play on the trombone. But I suppose my neighbor’s least favorite sound might be the trombone.
What song always gets stuck in your head: “Penny Lane” by The Beatles
If you could play a concert anywhere: I’d like to play in the Philharmonie, the concert hall of the Berlin Philharmonic. My brother plays trombone there often and he says it’s better than Carnegie Hall.

“Several years ago I came across those wings at Sarasota Architectural Salvage. I thought they were so cool-looking, and I put them in my studio for a year or more and I was trying to figure out what to do with them… I came across the Greek mythology of Icarus. All the things in that particular piece relate to that story to some degree … He was told by his father, (who) built him the wings out of wax, not to fly to close to the sun, and of course, he flew too high. The wings began to melt. When I was doing the piece, I wanted to have the idea that he was at the apex of his flight and falling.”
