    Music students selected for state’s All-Collegiate Concert Band

    Six Northwest Missouri State University music students have been selected as members of the 2016 Missouri Music Educators Association (MMEA) All-Collegiate Concert Band.

    The students are:

     

    Dr. Stephen Peterson, director of bands at the University of Illinois, will serve as the clinician and guest conductor for the band, which performs Friday, Jan. 29, at the MMEA Conference at Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach, Missouri.

    The All-Collegiate Concert Band brings together the finest collegiate instrumentalist from across Missouri and provides a rewarding musical experience for selected students.

    John Bell, director of bands and orchestra and artist-in-residence at Northwest, nominated the students for this year’s All-Collegiate Concert Band.

    “All of these students are among the finest musicians in the music program at Northwest,” Bell said. “It was an honor to nominate them for this prestigious event, and I know they will be excellent representatives of Northwest at the MMEA Conference. I’m looking forward to their performance.”

    Band directors from colleges and universities in Missouri that award a minimum of an associate degree or music minor are eligible to nominate students for consideration as members of the All-Collegiate Concert Band. Members are selected based on recommendations indicating musical accomplishments during their college careers. All students audition at the conference for specific chair positions in the band.
