His passion for music and commitment to making the community better led him back to Hemet after college. He is a husband and father and is dedicated to inspiring Hemet’s youth through music just as he was. Several years ago, Mr. Boulton brought together a group of local saxophonists to form a sort of Christmas Caroling group of saxes. They would travel to local homes and business spreading Christmas cheer and served as ambassadors of the rich legacy of music in the Valley. This year marks a milestone as Mr. Boulton expect upwards of thirty saxophonists made up of students, amateurs and professionals.
