Just a quick performing update:
I will be conducting the Clarion County High School High School Honors Concert this coming Thursday. The concert will start at 7:00 p.m. and will be held at Allegheny Clarion Valley Senior High School. If you are interested in attending and are close to the event, please do so -it is going to be a great concert.
Mr. Scott Ditullio will be hosting the event and there will be a number of county school districts represented. In addition to the symphonic concert, the county chorus will perform at the event.
The compositions that I’ve selected for the concert are as follows:
- Allegro Animato ~Frank Erickson
- On a Hymn Song of Philip Bliss ~David R. Holsinger
- A Copland Portrait ~Clare Grundman
- American Visions ~Travis J. Weller
- Caccia ~Francis McBeth
- Abbey Road: A Symphonic Portrait ~Ira Hearshen
- Rolling Thunder ~Henry Fillmore
The all-day SoundTree/Korg/SoundBeam seminar I hosted at GCC this past Monday was fantastic! (more to come about this) In addition, the Mercer County Honors Band that I conducted ten days ago was extremely successful as well. After this week, I can finally begin focusing on my upcoming Christmas and Winter Concerts and posting a number of delayed articles on MusTech.Net! It’s really the calm before the storm of my preparations for the soon-arriving Mid-West Band Clinic! I keep thinking it’s going to slow down.. hopefully this summer! :)
