Don’s earliest musical influences were radio broadcasts during WW II, the many fine radio orchestras, the Saturday afternoon opera broadcasts from The Met, big band remotes and the many fine classical music broadcasts. He came out of that era with a love of the great classical music along with the jazz tunes the dance bands were playing. After a 40+ year career teaching music, theatre, as a high school counsellor and online course developer, Don retired and started Sax Among Friends in Vancouver. When moving to Naramata in 2012, he restarted the group with an amazing gathering of fine local musicians. Don currently plays soprano, alto and tenor saxes with Sax Among Friends, tenor sax with the South Okanagan Big Band, and baritone sax with the Penticton Concert Band and Saxxafrass Saxophone Quartet in addition to many solo appearances. The South Okanagan is home to many accomplished musicians and Don is truly delighted to be making music with many of them.
Don offers this free concert as part of the Penticton Arts Council’s Arts Matter Online program. He sends out a thank you to the Penticton Arts Council, the Province of British Columbia, Canada Helps, Gore Mutual and generous community donors.
