The Colorado Symphony’s Resident Conductor, Scott O’Neil, can’t remember a time when he wasn’t passionate about music. Between his Dad being a marching band conductor and the piano that sat in his home, Mr. O’Neil was fascinated by music from an early age. From piano, to violin, to saxophone, he spent time learning how to play every instrument in the Symphony Orchestra, helping him become who he is today.

In the heart of Colorado the National Western Stock Show takes place, where visitors and participants from all over America come. When touring the many buildings housing animals, arts, and much more there were two mammals that fluffed out the most.
“There are moments in your life that change everything. I don’t mean little things like, say, what cereal turns out to be your favorite or whether you get into any AP classes or what girl you fall in love with or where you wind up living for the next twenty years. I mean total change. One second your world is one thing, the next-snap!-it is completely altered. All the rules, all the things you accepted about reality, are turned around.
Like, up becomes down. Left becomes right. ”
-by Harlan Coben from the novel, Seconds Away
