We had a new patient join our dental practice and he was a trombonist for the Symphony of Northwest Arkansas. During our conversation I needed to ask when the next concert was and he said in two weeks…Beethoven’s Ninth. Well this particular piece is on my bucket list . I want to conduct the Chicago Symphony Orchestra so any exposure to the Ninth I take advantage of. You can always learn from another conductor and I have not totally perfected my movements. So a dream concert came true. Attending the Symphony of Northwest Arkansas (SoNA) with me was my wife, Kim Hodous, and she wrote a blog about her experience. Check it out when you can!
