Chabot College Wind Symphony Secures Premier Engagement
Submitted By R. Russell
The Chabot College Wind Symphony has been invited to perform a concert on March 13, 2008 at the Sacramento Convention Center before the California Association for Music Education (CMEA) at its annual state conference. Many two and four-year colleges apply to perform at this prestigious event but just two were selected - Chabot College in Hayward and California State University, Long Beach.
"Being selected as one of just two groups to perform at this event is a monumental honor for any college band, but the honor is even greater when you consider that this program has only been in existence for a few years," said Timothy Harris, the Director of Instrumental Studies at Chabot College.
In just three years, the 40-member Chabot College Wind Symphony has gained notoriety as one of the state*s premier ensembles of its kind and is comprised of the most outstanding musicians in the greater Bay Area. Known for adventurous programming, the group pursues a commitment to performing new and historically significant music for wind band.
CMEA membership is open to all music educators working in public and private schools, colleges and universities in California. The purposes of the association are: to promote access to a sequential music education for all Pre-K through grade 12 students taught by fully qualified music educators; to support and improve existing music programs; to promote quality pre-service and in-service music teacher preparation programs; and, to create a greater awareness of the value of music education through partnerships with other associations and advocacy among state and local agencies.
