Vanderbilt University

Chairman, Music In The Commons

As Chairman of “Music in the Commons,” I organized and hosted over a dozen concerts around Vanderbilt's campus. My band “The Neon Eon” performed at many of the events. Also, I came up with the idea of recording a Music in the Commons album, pitched the idea to the Dean of the Commons, Frank Wcislo, and received a $5,000 grant to make my idea a reality.

The ten track CD was recorded at Wilder Side Productions, and the Vanderbilt community received it with much acclaim at our Music in the Commons end of the year music festival, which I organized featuring all of the artists from the album. http://commonplace.vanderbilt.edu
