Senior (as in Retired) student of music and the oboe. I had wanted to learn to play music for a long time and when I read Glenn’s “Wanted” poster in a shop window, I was IN! I started with the inaugural band in February 2014 and am having great fun learning to play music and making new friends. I am also studying oboe with a private teacher. My one regret is in not meeting someone like Glenn years ago. The entire experience is such a blast and very satisfying.Paul Becker
The success of our first concert is due to the excellent direction of our leader Glenn and the dedication of the executive members.
