Carlsbad Caverns is a perfect fit for Lon Chaffin who lives not far from the park. In 2015 he invited me to visit New Mexico to conduct several clinics at New Mexico State University where he is chairman of the music department. He also set up a performance of his piece Carlsbad at the Branigan Cultural Center in Las Cruces. Lon is a wonderful person, great composer, and a graphic designer as well. I look forward to seeing him again when it’s time to film his piece in Carlsbad Caverns!
