A conversation with conductor Andy Pease of Hartwick college and author of the Wind Band Literature blog and Wind Band Symphony Archive.
Back to school! This past July I had the chance to watch Tiffany Hitz in action at the UNC-Greensboro summer band camps and she is an exceptionally energetic and passionate teacher. At that moment I knew I had to have her on the podcast to talk about teaching, band music, and what composers need to to better!
Musicologist Michael O'Connor joins me for a fascinating discussion about the American concert band tradition in the 19th Century. The discussion touches upon the development of the modern band, music education, and the American Civil War.
Composer Chris Stark joins me to reflect upon the legacy of David Maslanka. Chris studied with David for a year and shares some of his memories before discussing his own exciting career.
