The other thing that has kept me busy the past week is the opportunity to make a new friend. His name is Maestro Steven Byess. He is a world renowned conductor. You can check out his web page if you'd like... www.stevenbyess.com

I interviewed him on Tuesday night while he was in our little town of 600 people with the Polish Sinfonia (8 piece orchestra). This is the 4th year they've come to Birch Tree and the 2nd time I've met Steven. We had dinner on Tuesday night then Wed after the concert, I had lunch with the entire ensemble. What an awesome experience. Steven and I now text regularly.

When I first saw him last year the first thing that popped into my head was Richard Gere in Pretty Woman. My photos show him much differently than his website.

He is so good with children... explaining music in terms they'll understand. He's produced a project with PBS called Count On It! - showing the correlation between Math and Music.
