2005 | Symphony Thunder

This larger than life symphony featured nearly 400 orchestral players, university drumline drummers, Brazlilan dancers and drummers, and a massive girl choir. The subject was about the storms we face in life and how we react in those moments. It was his largest endeavor to date and it was received with great praise and further accelerated his symphonic career. Also, this was the first year he invited a patient, he regularly played music with from the hospital, to come perform with the orchestra and choir behind them. It was a hit and started the tradition of a patient musician at every show.

Featuring Chris Degarmo of Queensryche, UW Drumline, VaMola Brazilian drum troop, African dancers/drummers, NW Girlchoir and patient musician Amy Ogmundson (RIP)
