About the Author

After graduating from The Juilliard School of Music and Teachers College, Columbia University, Bennett Lentczner began his career as a freelance trumpet player and a band director on Long Island, NY. His musical work with students was widely recognized and motivated him to study conducting, earning the Doctor of Arts degree from Ball State University. Bennett enjoyed much success as a collegiate conductor and was lured into the world of academic administration where he spent 20 years helping faculty and students fulfill their potential.

Today Bennett lives in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia with his wife, musician and writer Linda Whitesitt, and two adoring cats, Omar and Heshie. He remains active as a trumpet player and, when given the opportunity, raises his baton to the delight of players and audiences alike. He and his wife have recently published a book "Were Surviving Cancer . . . Today" about their journey with Bennett's lung cancer.
