Music and imagination have always been linked together as a symbiotic pair. Whether by intention or by chance, music inspires, touching that part of the human mind that imagines things. Here, world-class hornist (former Boston Brass hornist) JD Shaw joins with the experienced conducting of Eric Rombach-Kendall and the talented musicians of the University of New Mexico Wind Symphony performing a collection of works in which artistry, colors, passion and sorrow illustrate ‘Tales of Imagination.’
JD Shaw is currently Professor of French Horn at the University of New Mexico and was, formerly, the French hornist with the internationally acclaimed Boston Brass where he was creative director, and music arranger of the ensemble. JD is an active solo artist and travels extensively throughout the United States as well as many countries in North America, Europe, and Asia. In 2010, he was the featured recitalist at the 42nd International Horn Symposium in Brisbane, Australia. JD has also been a featured performer on National Public Radio’s Performance Today and the CBS Morning Show.
