Randall Terry campaigns in Cheyenne

Anti-abortion activist Randall Terry campaigns on Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012, outside of the downtown Cheyenne Starbucks. Terry is planning to air graphic anti-abortion television ads during this year's Super Bowl in several states, and hopes to split enough support for President Barack Obama among evangelicals and Catholics to unseat the president. "I think history will record that during the general election I will cause the defeat of Barack Obama," he said. (James Brosher/Wyoming Tribune Eagle)

Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra conductor William Intriligator

In early November, I had the opportunity to spend some time photographing William Intriligator, the music director and conductor for the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra, as he prepared for a concert featuring violin soloist Miriam Fried. The photos were for a “day in the life” type of story so I spent time with the conductor back stage before and during a rehearsal for the performance. It was pretty amazing to get the opportunity to hear Fried perform pieces from the Brahms Violin Concerto to absolute perfection on her first attempt as she had an informal meeting with Intriligator before a full-orchestra rehearsal.
