Life Changes Show

Show Host

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.

Guest Biography


Andrew Leonard. Clarinetist. Teaching Artist.

In the fifth grade I told my parents, “All I need in college is a decent place to be noisy and play clarinet.” Since then I’ve been searching for the notes, people, venues, and music that feel like home. After graduating Juilliard’s Pre-College Division and USC’s Thornton School of Music, I’ve performed on three continents and I’m now in LA to take in California’s diversity and possibility. I love chamber music, and I’m currently working with the Symbiosis Ensemble and Midnight Winds.

In an effort to gain further notoriety as a soloist and chamber musician, I’ve earned honors in the Torranace, Redlands, and Peninsula Music Festival concerto competitions, I was semi-finalist in the Midland-Odessa competition in Texas and I received a grant from the Santa Barbara Foundation. I’ve recorded for numerous soundtracks and performed with the International Bachakademie, New York String Seminar, Santa Monica Symphony, Intimate Opera Company, San Bernardino Symphony, and the Burbank Philharmonic among others.

I also express my passion for music through my teaching practice. I’ve written programs for the LA Phil, Harmony Project, the Music Center, USC Thornton School of Music, The Orchestras of Pasadena, and The DaCamera Society. I’m also a member of the applied music faculty at Mt. St. Mary’s College.
