On Thursday, March 28, 2013, Lincoln Municipal Band members Dean Haist, Nancy Vogt, Rebecca Van De Bogart, Ed Love, and Joe Holmquist visited two Lincoln middle schools to share their skills and passion for music.
The clinicians first stopped at Schoo Middle School, where the students of Gary Jungck received instruction and interacted with these professional performers and educators in master classes. This was followed by a full ensemble rehearsal, where the clinicians joined their respective sections to assist the students with their individual parts and the overall musical effect.
Next, the clinicians traveled to Dawes Middle School for their second visit of the morning. The students in Dick Marolf's 8th grade band were treated to break out sessions and a full ensemble rehearsal including the clinicians. The students, teachers, and clinicians had a wonderful experience making music together.
The Lincoln Municipal Band thanks Dietze Music, Lincoln Community Foundation, the Nebraska Arts Council and Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and the Rogers Foundation for supporting these educational outreach activities!
