This concert was at the Truman State Auditorium. I like this picture because it looks like UFO's are getting ready to abduct the bassoons. :) Our conductor, Colonel Palmatier, is a graduate of Truman State. There were lots of students in attendance, both high school and college. I participated in the evening's pre-concert talk where we answer questions and tell the audience a little bit about ourselves and our experiences in the Army. I was asked to talk about what it was like to go through Basic Combat Training! I was a little nervous speaking to the crowd, but it was a fun experience and a new way to interact with our audience members.
