Wind Ensemble Rehearsal.
“I have observed Don Owens' brilliant work on numerous occasions. From grade school to professional, jazz to orchestral, D.O. is a wonderful musician, artist, and communicator. Simply put, he is a master educator.
Every time I watch D.O. work I become a better teacher. Every time D.O. works with our students they become better musicians. I have worked with over a hundred incredible, talented, knowledgeable guest conductors in my career. If I had to rank them, Don Owens would sit firmly at the top.”
