On Wednesday February 9th at 7:30 at the Cailloux Theater, the Texas State University Wind Ensemble will be performing a program for the public.
The Ensemble, conducted by Dr. Rod Schueller, is comprised of wind and percussion majors in the School of Music and other non-music majors who are selected by audition. The ensemble has performed for such prestigious music associations as the Texas Music Educators Association, the College Band Directors National Association, the College Music Society, and the Music Educators National Conference.
This year will feature performances for both the Texas Music Educators Association Clinic and Convention in San Antonio as well as the National Conference of the College Band Directors National Association on the campus of the University of Washington and in the city of Seattle, Washington.
Ensemble member and Kerrville native Marty Lenard contacted Playhouse 2000 when the group decided to prepare for their performances at TMEA and in Washington before a live audience. A large portion of the ticket sales will go to fund the travel expenses for both Conferences.
Playhouse staffers, many of whom are TSU graduates were quick to welcome the Wind Ensemble to the Cailloux Theater stating “We were anxious to provide the community with the same high quality musical and performing groups with which they had become accustom. TSU is well known for excellence in the performing arts.”
The Wind Ensemble shares the Cailloux with several major musical performers that week including: Violist Esther Kim and Robert Earl Keen. Tickets and information for these events are available at the Cailloux Box office at (830) 896-9393 ext 223 or online at www.caillouxtheater.com
