UCLA Wind Ensemble performs at the College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA)

March 29th, 2016 · No Comments

Here’s an update from Wind Ensemble Director Prof. Travis Cross–

“The UCLA Wind Ensemble gave an invited performance at the College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA) Western/Northwestern Division Conference at the University of Nevada, Reno, on Saturday, March 19, 2016. CBDNA is the primary professional organization for college band directors, and appearances at division and national conferences are among the most significant peer-reviewed performance opportunities for bands and wind ensembles. After the performance, the UCLA Wind Ensemble also served as the demonstration group for a conducting masterclass led by UCLA director of bands emeritus Thomas Lee.

En route to Reno, the UCLA Wind Ensemble performed at the Paul Shaghoian Memorial Concert Hall at Clovis North Educational Center and the McAfee Performing Arts and Lecture Center at Saratoga High School. The ensemble also visited Clovis High School for a side-by-side rehearsal with their band and individual instrument masterclasses led by UCLA students.”
