Vail Symposium
June 26: Vail Symposium Presents “Get Your Head in the Game” featuring Dallas Symphony Orchestra principal flautist Demarre McGill and former Denver Bronco Reggie Rivers. McGill and Rivers will detail their thoughts before they take the stage, or before the game, and how they reflect on their performance after the final bow or whistle. In this intimate discussion of pressure, focus, and mentality, McGill and Rivers will discuss the struggle to perform and how they consistently come out on top.
