As you may have noticed, BACOUSTICS and I have been quite busy at the start of this 2016-2017 school year! I've been actively working with the amazing undergraduates at Rutgers in the past few years and we've added so many new elements to the program and I can't wait to share everything with you!
For now, I'd like to direct your attention to the more immediate event on our docket, WOODWIND DAY!
This year's Rutgers Woodwind Day is earlier than it has been in years past-- OCTOBER 23, 2016. Yes, that's this upcoming Sunday! While there are several exciting things happening at this year's event, you're really going to want to follow the happenings of BACOUSTICS.
We're starting the day by performing on the morning Faculty and Student Showcase Recital (11:30-1pm). We have a few pieces planned. First, Amanda, Connor, and Michael T. will perform a movement from the Bergt Trio. Patrick and Michael M. will join the oboes in an arrangement of Handel's The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba from Solomon. To close the show, BACOUSTICS will be joined by the Doubler Ensemble and the newest addition to the faculty of the music education program at MGSA, Stephanie Cronenberg! (... and, we *might* have a special encore planned... *wink wink*)
Following the morning concert, we're going to be hanging out at the booth you DEFINITELY won't want to miss in the exhibits room, RH104. Not only will we have a steady stream of our performance videos playing, we'll also have a plethora of printed information, a chance to order your very own BACOUSTICS T-shirt (online ordering slated to be available soon... in the meantime, if you'd like to be included in this order, send me an email and I'll help you get your name on the list), and you can even brand yourself with a BACOUSTICS "B" temporary tattoo!
We'll be working on reeds and posing for photos throughout the day when we're not playing. We hope you'll join us for the day!
