“It will be a real treat for our students to have the opportunity to learn from and perform with Ron,” said Shook. “It’s always been a dream of mine to work with him. The very first CD I ever purchased was “High, Bright, Light, and Clear,” by the Canadian Brass. Ron’s big message is to enjoy life, enjoy music and help others. That’s his main drive in all that he does.”
Shook and Romm are writing a book together based on Romm’s musical experiences. Lamar students will also assist with research for the book, for which Shook received a Research Enrichment Grant funded through the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
