UNCG hosts national music conference

The sounds of hundreds of the nation's finest collegiate musicians will reverberate through Aycock Auditorium next week as UNCG hosts the national convention of the College Band Directors National Association. The conference, which will take place March 20-23, brings together more than 250 college and university band conductors, dozens of composers and hundreds of performers who will be featured in a total of 11 concerts in the historic performance venue.

Visiting performers will include wind ensembles from the University of Maryland, the University of Kentucky, Louisiana State University, St. Olaf College, the University of South Carolina, Baylor University and the University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee.

The UNCG Wind Ensemble, conducted by John R. Locke and Kevin M. Geraldi, will perform on Friday, March 22, at 8 p.m. This special concert will feature world premieres of four brand new compositions by leading composers, as well as the “Symphony of Psalms” by Igor Stravinsky. A choir of 120 voices and the McIver Quartet, UNCG's faculty string quartet, will join the ensemble in this performance.

While hosting the conference is a considerable honor for the university, it is also a great opportunity for the public to attend concerts by a wide array of collegiate musicians. Admission to all concerts is free, with general admission seating, and the full schedule can be found on the School of Music, Theatre and Dance performance calendar or on the CBDNA web site.

In addition, all performances will be streamed live, via internet, at SMTD Live!, the school's online streaming service, which is also free to access.
