    Dear all,

    Please join me in congratulating my dear friend and colleague, Chuck Lazarus for winning a HUGE award in the Twin Cities, the McKnight Fellowship!

    This is a very big deal and involves a $25,000 prize for excellence in musical performance featuring his compositions. He had to play before a jury and did so, apparently, with great grace and aplomb.

    I'm proud to have Chuck in the section. He is an example of a true "Go-getter", constantly writing compositions and putting himself out before the public as a member of the MO and at the Dakota jazz Club down the street from Orchestra hall.

    We're lucky to have a colleague like Chuck in the section and as a friend. The other guys in the section all feel the same way. We're proud of him.

    Amen, Manny! I've heard Chuck play many times. His own compositions sound incredible, and he is a master of many different styles of music.

    Congrats, Chuck! You are very deserving of the McKnight award.

    Although we miss you here in NY, it sounds like you've made quite an impact in MN!

    Excellent! Congratulations, Chuck!

    If you haven't picked up his Solo Settings CD, it's a great and extremely versitle album. Available on iTunes, too.

    Well done to Chuck!

    I do remember him being a top bloke when we met with Manny after the Proms.

    His CD Solo Setting is also worth listening to!
