Happy 4th of July everyone! This evening I plan on attending the P&G Fourth of July Bash in Cincinnati, which includes a performance by the New Sousa Band.
The New Sousa Band is one of many bands performing this week in Cincinnati.
The 14th Annual World Association of Symphonic Bands and Ensembles Conference will be held in Cincinnati this week (July 5-11), and to fulfill my inner need of listening to lots of band music, I will be working this conference.
This dose of exposure might be good for my band-writing skills. Writing for symphonic band or wind ensemble is something I am not terribly familiar with, and according to John Mackey, this is something I should seriously consider. Of course, he ended up moving to Austin.
