Conductor/ Composer Grant Cooper on "The Tonight Show"

Here's a screen shot of Grant Cooper with Vice President elect Joe Biden at Ellen's Homemade Ice Cream in Charleston WV. The clip was on The Tonight Show, Monday, 11/3/08 and was followed up with a spoof attack ad using the same footage.

Grant composed and conducted "Boyz in the Wood" . The CD features Steve as the Wolf. Steve joins the WV Symphony for their holiday concerts in December. Grant conducts and Ellen Beal, owner of Ellen's Ice Cream, plays flute in the Symphony (and her ice cream is terrific!)
