T minus 2 Weeks!
Well, the semester here continues to grind toward exams. We have 2 weeks left before exams and what seems to be about a month worth of work to cram into that time-frame!
Last week, the Northern Brass Quintet concert went well. Poor weather and an Artist Series concert conflict significantly reduced the audience, but those in attendance seemed appreciative. It was good to have the group together again!
On Thursday April 19, UNITUBA will have its final concert of the school year. The concert is at 8pm Central time. This concert will be our second Live Web Cast and can be accessed at concert time at the following link: http://mm1.uni.edu:8080/1/mp3/unituba/live-unituba.ram
I got a nice surprise of an email this week from a former student, Kenson Choi, who is now a member of the band at Disneyland in Hong Kong. Nice Photo!
Kenson received a Master of Arts degree from UNI.
Next weekend will be the Mid-South Regional Tuba and Euphonium conference hosted at the University of Memphis and my good friend Dr. John Mueller. I look forward to taking part in this, though I dread the very early morning travel time to get me there in time! I will be chairing the Mock Tuba Orchestra Audition Jury and also presenting a clinic on Tuba/Euphonium Construction, Maintenance and Repair. Got a great Powerpoint for this one that perhaps will find its way to the website before long!
