A Note From Don

"I think that a good metaphor for how I see myself when I most enjoy my work is playing the part of the maestro who is capable of leading the whole orchestra to achieve the most beautiful sound and to do the most justice to the composer's work. The maestro is also very capable in helping each orchestra member to get the most beauty out of his or her own instrument and play it to meld it with the efforts of all the rest of the orchestra.  The maestro is always looking to help the whole orchestra and/or individual members to perform either better or in a different beautiful way. To push the limits a little further, I would help to explore the acoustics of the orchestral hall (the organizational form) to provide an ideal foundation for the orchestra's work."
