Leonard Bernstein. Arthur Fielder. Michael Tilson Thomas. Marvin Hamlisch. Marin Alsop.

I always made sure I attend(ed) as many concerts led by these folks as I could. But, while I enjoyed their musical performances, I could never put my finger on exactly what made these folks such great musical leaders.

Many of my clients find themselves in deep trouble around 15 April. They have badly miscalculated (maybe I should use the word ‘misconstrued’) how much they will have to pay the IRS.
