A fistfull of batons...
On the cover of the most recent issue of the Oregon Symphony program, you'll see music director Carlos Kalmar holding an array of batons (photographed by Micahel Jones -- with apologies from me because I can't get this photo to upload as clearly as I would like). The batons were made by Alan Piece, who retired last year from the orchestra's trombone section. Pierce, by the way, left earlier this week to deliver a set of batons to Simon Rattle in Berlin.
