Cantor Scamper, Russ Carere

Cantor Scamper is a tribute to a favorite presenter in the Pittsburg area, Owen Cantor. His non-stop, energy and drive is represented in this fast-paced music by Russ's use of double tonging technique. There is a slight pause in the "scampering," since on occasion Owen allowed the ASQ to slow down just long enough for a bowl of soup before the flurry of activity began again! The beautiful melody in Danny Girl represents the slow thoughtful music of ragtime ballads. The inspiration for this charming piece comes from Danielle, a special young lady whose obvious outward beauty radiates, but her inward beauty is truly a special gift.
