What is your most memorable story involving Mr. O?
Some of our percussion section were goofing off one day in class and weren’t paying attention. Mr. O finally had enough and completely lost his cool and in the process snapped his baton in half. That was the day I realized just how much he loves music.

If you could ask Mr. O any question, what would it be?
Is there an instrument that you didn’t enjoy playing?
