Webster started the study of hts In
strument at the ige of fourteen, ac
cording to the Conn Mnslc Center. For
eleven years he wna soloist with the
famous John C. WVber prize band of
America. For yeara he was the sen
sation of the Clnclnautl Symphony or
chestra. "There Is nothing unnstial about my
musical career," says Webster, "Al

that I was given nn opportunity to
carry out that ambition. I was the
