I think I recognize the guest conductor. Isn’t he almost 100 years old?? (Moves better than most 60 year olds)

Col Gabriel was a guest conductor for the Symphonic Band of the Palm Beaches back in 1984 in West Palm Beach, FL.. He also gave clinics for local HS bands during his time here. He is an impressive man of music no matter what his age.
