My first visit to Ecuador in March 2011 was a wonderful experience – making friends, experiencing a different culture, walking in the Andes, working with young students and playing with the Loja Symphony Orchestra. I am looking forward to retu
rning to continue this new relationship. Joining me will be a gifted student group from the Jamey Aebersold Jazz Studies Program at the University of Louisville. We will be presenting master classes and concerts while interacting with students from a number of schools and musical organizations. I am certain that everyone will benefit from meeting and playing together.
I always enjoy taking photos of the country and it’s people. There were numerous opportunities for images of music and travel activities.
