    I am happy for this man because he obviously had the time of his life and did a great job of conducting. However, I do feel like this is something that turns away simple everyday conductors who would have loved to have such a thrilling musical experience. According to Mr. Lewis' personal website, he is a professional cellist, recording artist, vocal instructor, military band conductor, choral conductor-in-residence and teacher of music education. Mr. Lewis has had the privilege of traveling to many places and conducting great ensembles from different parts of the world, performing at the ACDA National Conference more than once and recording 5 albums.
    It appears that this competition was really for that level of musician and those with less illustrious careers of lesser renown- while the competition was touted as open to all-never really stood a chance.
