Conductor: 1989-2016

Don earned his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Music Education from Indiana University and taught public school music early in his instructional career. Subsequently he earned his Doctorate in Education in Instructional Technology at IU. After his relocation to Jackson Hole in 1983 he became a founding member of a brass quintet, which became the impetus for him (along with Tom Ninnemann) to start the Jackson Hole Community Band in 1989. He also conducted the choir at Jackson's First Baptist Church for 7 years and the choir at the Presbyterian Church for 4 years. He led the JHCB for its first 16 1/2 years until his retirement in 2005. He continues to play in this band and the community jazz band, as well as occasionally filling in as conductor.
