We have just launched "Project America The Dream" This a special Cd project I am producing with West Aurora High School in Aurora IL. I will have the school band and chorus perfoming with me on this Cd. 100% of the proceeds of this project will go to the Christopher Patterson Foundation. The Christopher Patterson Foundation gives scholarships to music students. The release date for the is CD will be Veterans Day November 11 2013. Chris was a 2009 graduate of West Aurora High School along with performing with the school band, Patterson joined the National Guard while studying music education at Valparaiso University in Indiana. When his guard unit was sent to Afghanistan in November, the North Aurora resident could have stayed behind to continue his studies, but chose to join his unit overseas. Chris was killed in in action January 6 2012.
