Chris is a brilliant musician and educator. His ensembles at Lake Central are top notch, and he was very influential both on and off the field during his time on Madison's visual staff.

This a great opportunity for the corps, and the fact that he is coming back the same year as BZ and Van Mathews is quite incredible.

There can't be that big a market for a freelance organist, can there? :tounge2:

Heck of a resume, though.

Awesome news!

The real question: does the original Lemon Squeeze shirt he wore every day for years still exist?

(I own one, btw, and wouldn't sell it for ((almost)) any price)

NW Indiana/Chicago area is where he resides and works. You'd be surprised how many organ gigs there are.

Indiana?

Yes, St John, Indiana. Although I see him in Chicago almost every moment he's not with the band. He may as well love there.

Now that is a quality typographical error.
