In 1983 The Tcherepnin Society offered me my first contracting experience. The job was set to take place at Lincoln Centers Avery Fisher Hall. After the large success of the evening, while driving home, I recall thinking to myself this is what I wanted to do with my life. Secure top-notch performance ensembles to perform at world class venues. I enjoyed seeing a project from its inception to the final curtain call.Looking back at my 30 plus year career, this is still one of the greatest joys and accomplishments in my professional life.
