First Prize Winners of the 2018 M-Prize International Chamber Arts Competition, their passion, quality, variety, instrumentation, and focus on the audience experience set them apart. With The Moanin’ Frogs, Goodman has performed at small towns to major performance halls alike throughout the US and abroad, such as The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC; Detroit Public Television; eight performances in and around the SaxOpen Festival Strasbourg, France; to rural Arkansas. The Moanin’ Frogs have entered into partnership with the Conn-Selmer Division of Education, allowing the ensemble to give performances and interactive sessions with students nationwide.

β€œNot long after I showed up in Tucson as a 17-year-old freshman, I got to witness Lute lead the 1997 Cats to the promised land: a National Championship,” said Rapkin, who studied film at TFTV. β€œIt is truly an honor to have the chance to help tell this story.”

β€œI’m thrilled to be a member of the team making a film celebrating Coach O’s life and legacy,” said Jason Terry, executive producer and member of the 1997 championship team. β€œThis is also a special opportunity to allow the coaches, fans, players and families that he inspired along the way to tell their own stories.”
