In Route

I wanted you guys to see the lovely campus that I spend my LIFE at :)
Welcome to the Baylor School of Music front yard via instagram and photocollage!

Anywho- tour update!!

Guess who didn't have wifi on the bus? THIS GIRL.

Mega bummer considering I have a research paper, program notes, and and independent study project to be working on this week. That will probably work out well.

Just a quick update to remind you that we (the Baylor Wind Ensemble) are on tour!
Like- right now! 

I'm actually checking in with you from Little Rock, AR- so if you're here HELLO!

We will be playing at Immanuel Baptist Church tomorrow morning so if you live in Little Rock- come see us! It will be a great morning.

Another reminder that the rest of our schedule looks a bit like this:

3/17/13- Little Rock, AR, Immanuel Baptist (morning service)
3/18/13- Nashville, TN, Schermerhorn Symphony Center (SO COOL!!!)
3/19/13- Atlanta, GA, Murray Arts Center
3/20/13- Greenville, SC
3/21/13- Greensboro, NC @ 8:00PM LIVE STREAM HERE

Or you can check out my initial post about the tour HERE.

Since everything is about the tour at the moment, I wanted to share our program bio (as an ensemble) with you!

"The Baylor Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Eric Wilson, is the premier wind band of the Baylor University School of Music and has been praised as one of the flagship programs in the nation. Performances at previous state and national conferences in the country were characterized as “nothing short of spectacular” and “representing the best in wind band performance.”

The Baylor Wind Ensemble’s program on tour includes exciting music of intriguing and diverse styles, and features Dr. Jun Qian performing a foot-tapping work originally written for Benny Goodman. Their CBDNA performance at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro is the culmination of a multi-state concert tour."


Schoenberg: Fanfare on Motifs of "Die Gurrelieder"
Lindroth: Passage
Gould: Derivations for Clarinet and Wind Band, Featuring Dr. Jun Qian
Colgrass: Winds of Nagual


Bryant: Ecstatic Fanfare

Here is a teeny tiny photo of the group since we're so big! Sorry ;)
