I was the orchestra director at Urbana High School, but have since retired. I'm still concertmaster of CU symphony (I run across "Bernie Bowings" from time to time, and always am very glad when I do). I also work with the Tone Road Ramblers (new music and improvisation),, and do some other gigging. I still travel around doing contemporary music recitals and festivals at various universities and colleges.

I was married in 1967 to Salvatore Martirano. Sal died in 1995 of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) We have 2 sons: Alex, a bass player, is 34 and works for the U of I School of Music as a recording engineer. John, 30, is a research scientist and works at Beckman Institute (National Center for Supercomputing Applications),

For any tour musicians who also compose, The U of I hosts an international composer's award and concert each year in Sal's name. As of 2003 there were more than 1200 entries from 30+ countries over the eight years of the competition. Any composer, regardless of age or nationality can submit a piece. First place is a cash award of $1000 and a performance by the University of Illinois New Music Ensemble in the fall of each year at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. Sometimes there's a second place award. If interested, contact me and I'll send you more information.
