ALL STATE CONDUCTOR: Texas Community College All State

Sarah McKoin (Other)

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


In Texas, to be selected as an All-State conductor is a very high honor and the "best of the best" are selected from across the country. If you are a college band director IN the state of Texas, you are ineligible to conduct the TMEA TX All-States. However, <br>you are eligible to be considered to conduct the TX Community College All State. <br>I selected a program, rehearsed for 2-3 days for approximately 8 hours per day and created a performance that was presented in a public concert that was professionally recorded and videotaped. Additionally, I brought in a well known composer (John Mackey) to work with the students. The focused and broad visibility for the TTU School of Music, band program, and wind, brass and percussion applied faculty is enormous. The performance is heard by at least 500+ attendees of educators, parents, and applied teachers with approximately 100 students on stage. Additionally, broadcasts and recordings represent further exponential opportunities for outreach and visibility.<br><br>
