"Puget Sound" from H2Eau (the Wind Ensemble with voice arrangement) gets its premiere February 18th, 2001 with the Milwaukee Concert Band with soprano Paula Garcia under the direction of Dennis Benjamin.

Dr. Nick Contorno (director of the Marquette University bands) is the principal conductor of the ensemble, and he presented me with the very first annual 'Youth in Music Award'.

At the reception after the concert we had Nick, Dennis, and I pose together with the plaque.
