Brad’s Remarks at the Concert

Everything happens for a reason. I spun around at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington during the late 60’s and thankfully found my Music Major home at PSU in 1971. I continue to believe that developing active listening chops in musical settings and myriad life situations enhances conversation content possibility. Observing the dynamic PSU Jazz Music Program and Mersereau Scholars’ pay it forward approach since 2007 inception facilitates my learning and growth as a musician and composer. I embrace this inspirational connection! Junior / Senior recitals and masterclasses affirm that the art of jazz dialogue is an elastic, evolving, and exhilarating process. It is heartening to see that managing one’s finances and life off of the bandstand is addressed formally and informally. I remain a grateful partner in all of this and am proud of all 12 dedicated recipients of my endowed senior year scholarship. In my book, you and your educators receive 5 stars! Thank you.
