On Wednesday, February 28th at noon I presented the second of my three recitals for the D.M. degree at
Northwestern. This one was my Lecture-Recital, entitled "Elden Benge and the Chicago Benge Trumpet."
I played a number of pieces, and there was an accompanying Power Point presentation with historical
pictures and documents.

Steve Ward & Michael Lill.
Pieces performed included:
Chorale from Mahler's 3rd Symphony
Joe Lill, Brandon Eubank, Gabe Palmer & Roy Smith, trumpets
