TMEA 2014

January 31, 2014

Hey y’all! (I grew up in Arkansas, I have license to say “y’all”)

The Texas Music Educators Association convention is 11 days away! This year, I’ll be giving a clinic with composer Alex Shapiro, and conductors Robert Sloan and Miller Asbill covering technology and music education – everything from our pieces that use electronics (and how that works), to technology in the classroom/rehearsal hall. The clinic is part of TI:ME and will be Wed. Feb. 12 at 4:30 p.m., room CC206.

Also fortunate to have FOUR performances this year:

  • Thursday, 11:30am
    Stephen F. Austin State UniversityEcstatic Fanfare (John Mackey’s The Frozen Cathedral is also on the program!)
    I was just out at SFASU last Fall, and true to Texas form, they have some fantastic ensembles out there. This concert is definitely worth your time.
  • Saturday, 9:30am
    ATSSB/TMEA All-State Concert Band, Tim Rhea, conductor – Dusk
  • Saturday, 12:30pm
    4A Symphonic Band, Johan De Meij, conductor – Ecstatic Fanfare
  • Saturday, 3:30pm
    5A Concert Band, Roby George, conductor – Suite Dreams

Really looking forward to working with all the students in these ensembles! Check out the full all-state program.

Also stoked to hear the world premiere of John Mackey’s new “Wine-Dark Sea : Symphony for Band” by the UT Wind Ensemble, Thursday night!

See all y’all there!
