I recently moved from Texas to Eagan, Minnesota. I played in a couple of community bands back home and in a traditional jazz band. I looked on the internet and found about 10 community bands in the St. Paul area. One of them required an audition, the Inver Hills Community Band. I figured that band ought to have better personnel and play more interesting music than the community bands I have played in lately. So I arranged for an audition and was fortunate enough to pass it. I'm really looking forward to playing in this group for the next couple of years or so.
