Harris, on playing for kids with Concordia Wind Quintet: "I think it's really fun because we do really enjoy each other as friends and we've been playing together for some many years. I was thinking at our last concert, we've been playing this piece for so many years and we still play it in a genuine, fun way, and I think that can't help but rub off on the kids. I think they see us having a blast, and so they have fun, too."
