Misplaced conductor’s baton?

Guest conductor Sam Spence worked with the UW-Green Bay Wind Symphony in the Studio Arts music room on Tuesday. He’ll guest conduct them at Friday’s big “Football Night at the Meyer” concert. He’d first like to find, however, his lucky conductor’s baton.  Basically, it’s a skinny, foot-long white wand imprinted with the words “Los Angeles Philharmonic” and it may or may not be in its protective glass tube. He’s not sure if it got misplaced out here, en route or at his hotel, but if you find it, call ext. 2527 on campus. (P.S. – Be reassured, the concert will go on regardless. He joked last night that any old stick would do, but he’s hoping to find the real deal. He and it have made a lot of good music together.)
