I haven't mentioned it much, but living away from home for more than a year can take its tolls on the emotions every once in a while. I'll admit that I get a bit homesick at times. During these times, I sometimes go through bits of nostalgia where I look up random stuff on the internet from my seemingly past lifetime. Lately I've been going through music nostalgia due to this recent wind ensemble festival. Through my internet searching, I found these two awesome pieces and a couple other wonderful clips too. These are when I was a member of the Star of Indiana, "Brass Theater" show.

This song is way cool, but I only play in a very short section. You can sort of see me around the 1:00 remaining mark. I'm the front french horn player with the badly dyed yellow hair. The music is "Swing, Swing, Swing" by John Williams (not to be confused with "Sing, Sing, Sing" by Louis Prima)

This is one of my favorites but there's no close ups where you can see me...sorry. Again, I'm playing the french horn. The music is the finale of "Firebird" by Stravinsky.

Thanks to Raquel Rodriquez for posting these videos!

  1. Dan, thanks for posting those! I had no idea that they were on youtube. I'm totally going to e-mail the URL to a bunch of my friends!
