Doug Burris: “This was the concert that we’ve been rehearsing four decades for … 40 years in the making, it was absolutely amazing!”
This was the final performance of the Rock Ensemble under the direction of Doug Burris. Mr. Burris retires in 2012 after an incredibly successful career and an educator – he has been and continues to be an inspiration to his students and to everyone who knows him, a person who is truly himself a lesson for mankind.
