I am very pleased to announce that I will be the Director of Athletic Bands at Campbell University, starting in the Fall of 2015. I am very excited for the opportunity to work more with the wonderful students in Buies Creek and direct the band for Football, Men's and Women's Basketball.
The Sound of the Sandhills Athletic Band is comprised of 120-130 university students who perform throughout the year. The program is open to both music majors and non-majors, with every student in the program receiving a scholarship for their services. Additionally, the band goes every year to the Big South Basketball Conference Tournament, which is located in Myrtle Beach, SC.
While I am sad to leave UNC Greensboro, I am very thankful to all of the wonderful students, friends, faculty members, and staff that I have had a privilege to work with. It has been a wonderful experience, and I wish you nothing but the best.
Look for many more posts to come soon, thanks for reading!
