Conducting Dusk at Bowie HS this Friday!

December 10, 2007

Bruce Dinkins, director of bands at Bowie HS in Austin, has graciously invited me to conduct Dusk with his Wind Ensemble this Friday night, December 14th. I met the band last Thursday and we sight-read through the piece, and I have to say I was blown away. This band is good – they were making music from my first downbeat. I’ll go over the piece again with them this Thursday morning, and that’s it – who ever heard of a High School group putting a piece together in two rehearsals?

If you’re in Austin, come down to Bowie High School Friday night. Concert starts at 7, I believe, and the wind ensemble is last on the program (there are other bands before them).

In other news, I finally have my laptop back, so I’ll try to get some pictures up from my recent adventures in Seattle and Rochester. Right now, I must print up a box-load of Radiant Joy scores and sets for Shattinger Music – sounds like he’s going all-out for Midwest this year
