Jon English

I joined a carfull of rollicking Physical Education majors headed back to the University of Illinois from New York City in February of 1965. Composers, performers, and conductors from all over the world came to the 1965 Contemporary Arts Festival and I was treated to a spectacular display of luminaries, concerts and lectures. Almost immediately, I met Ron Dewar (Tenor and Soprano Saxophonist), Will Parsons (percussionist and composer), and Jon English (trombonist, bassist, and composer).
