Geared toward students at the graduate conducting level or in the early stages of a conducting career, The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own”, the premier music organization of the U.S. Army, will offer this unique workshop and provide its participants conducting opportunities with The U.S. Army Concert Band. This intensive 5-day program will include coaching with special guest clinician Dr. Emily Threinen of The University of Minnesota, and COL Bruce Pulver, The U.S. Army Band’s Leader and Commander.

Sessions will include pertinent profession-related topics of score study, baton and rehearsal techniques, and open rehearsals with Dr. Threinen. Rehearsals will culminate in a public concert on Friday, July 21.
