Tris Imboden, of the band Chicago, has traveled around the world and back behind a set of drums.

But at home in Malibu, he is able to unwind a bit, and he recently offered his expert opinion to young, aspiring musicians during the Malibu Rotary Club’s annual choral competition at Pepperdine last month. It was here that the Surfside caught up with Imboden. 

“I’m delighted to serve the community of Malibu by judging this competition,” Imboden said. “I’m not able to give back as much as I wish I could because often I am on the road.”
