Sons have been known to follow in their father’s footsteps, but Joseph Brooks will be the first to tell you he may now be the one a step behind.

Brooks, a Central Washington University clarinet professor, performed Sunday with his son, Jeff, also a clarinetist, with the Central Washington University Orchestra.
Jeff, an Ellensburg High School and Central Washington University graduate, is finishing up his doctorate degree at Florida State University.
