At the Yamaha atelier in Tokyo with Hiromu Kokai and Hiroshi Nakajima. Nakajima-san worked on my horns and gave them a good tune-up!

Here is a cross section of a clarinet-it's cut in half!

Here is that half-clarinet with a cross section of a Grenadilla tree.

I didn't get to use this! Because of the corona virus, the 2020 Music for All National Festival was canceled...I was honored to have been asked and I hope I get the chance again in the future. Congratulations to all of the bands selected to perform!
