On Saturday, November 2, 2008 Joe conducted a performance of his "Concordance" 1994 for double brass quintet. The brass group Auf biegen Und Blechen - see upper photo -- (http://www.aufbiegenundblechen.de/) performed the work in the church Christuskirche Westercelle in Celle near Hanover, Germany.
The performance was successful and the music was enjoyed by both the musicians and audience.

While in Europe, Joe (on left in above photo) visited his longtime friend and fellow Yalie Jean-Yves Benichou (on right in above photo) who has been playing bass with the Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra (in Strasbourg, France) for over 30 years.
