In Spring, 2020, I conducted the best middle school band of my career (and that’s really saying something, I’ve had some kickin’ groups!). I was on my way to retirement and looked forward to festivals in May and our Spring Concert soon after. Unfortunately, Covid-19 hit, school closed, and this stellar group of students never got to showcase their talents. I wrote an article about my feelings and the Montana Senior News picked it up with the title, A Silent Symphony of the Heart. Enjoy.
