The event was held last week in Indianapolis. He is pictured above with his Mother and Father, Teresa and Wally Richard, and his brother Noah. This photo was taken at Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University where the Honor Band of America had their concert, the world premiere of "Sky is Waiting" by Samuel Hazo whose compositions are in "The Top Twenty Compositions of All Time for Wind Bands. The piece was commissioned for the 2006 Honor Band of America and they played it to a sold-out crowd.
