Kerry Kennard, Drummer & Percussionist - Drummer Rochester, NY (Eastman School of Music) 7th June 2007
"To whom it may concern” This is a recommendation in support of Mr. Kerry Kennard. I have known Mr. Kennard since July 2007, when he was a participant in my week long Creative Music Making Institute at the Eastman School of Music 2007 Summer Session. I observed Mr. Kennard’s performances as a percussionist in the 2007 workshops and gala concert, and I found his performances to be excellent - musical and with a clear sense of commitment. In my opinion Mr. Kennard has the motivation necessary to achieve success, both in his studies and in percussion performance. I have been fortunate to observe percussion students at all levels worldwide during many years of teaching and performing with the percussion quintet, NEXUS, and as the Principal Percussionist of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. Based on that experience I am delighted to give Kerry Kennard my recommendation. Sincerely, William L. Cahn Member of the NEXUS Percussion Group Assoc. Prof. of Percussion, Eastman School of Music Visiting Prof. of Percussion, Showa Academy, Kawasaki, Japan"

Mr. Kerry Kennard is a responsible man whose skill as a percussionist has been extremely beneficial for the performances i have hired him for. He is both responsible and capable. I would recommend him for any opportunity to work musically in multiple venues.
