He has remained an active musician in the San Antonio area since including being a member of many other bands, teaching, and also conducting.
According to its website, the Comal Community Band “[Performs] as an American show band; the musical group has a large repertoire that includes German Music, show tunes, Big Band, rousing marches, classical arrangements, military theme songs, and seasonal music. The band also performs selections from the modern wind band genre.” 
This will be the band’s fifth time to kick off the concert series and they are always a hit with the crowd.
