Classmate David Wilken shares his love of music.  At Western Carolina University, he is an instructor of music.  He also finds time to be the music director and lead trombonist of the Asheville Jazz Orchestra. And there is more!  Over the recent 4th of July holiday, the Land of the Sky Symphonic Band under David’s leadership, performed for the festivities.
