I just got this email from Dr. Lindahl today. The brass talked about this a couple months ago, but I thought nothing had come from it. Imagine my surprise yesterday when I found out this group was coming to CMU. Here is the email from Dr. Lindahl:
As we discussed quite a while ago in Brass Quintet, we’re having the community brass ensemble from Clare come and perform here in room 156 on April 28. We have several CMU students and alumni who play with this group. It will be a combination performance/clinic/discussion for our students and Michael has asked that the brass profs provide some comments immediately after the Gateway Brass performance for the group. So here is the plan
Monday April 28 – Room 156
7:30 - Gateway Brass Performs about 30 min.
8:00 - CMU Brass Faculty feedback re the performance
8:15 - Michael Wright Q/A (he will talk briefly about being an educator for a public school and participating in community music organizations, then answer any questions)
8:30 - massed brass piece or two (he want one of us to do the conducting – maybe we can find two pieces to play at the end)
Can you inform your studios about this? ...
I am not requiring you to be there since this is such a late notice. But if can clear your schedules out an come, that would be GREAT. I, too, am going to have to move some items around so I can (hopefully) be there.
