Out of the Blue class of 2010

Although I didn't know Ben well, being a part of the annual Christmas concert was a true pleasure and honor. I'll never forget his incredibly expressive conducting style, the way he tapped his fingers to close a note, or the way he would mouth "thank you" at the end of Alleluia or Mary Had a Baby. He was an extraordinary man and he will be missed and remembered.
