Marshall band faculty to present first performance together


The  School of Music and Theatre will present the  Symphonic Band and Wind Symphony at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23, in Smith Recital Hall .

The concert, which will include nearly 200 performers, will be the first to include both new band directors at Marshall as conductors.

Director of Bands Steven Trinkle, who will be conducting the Wind Symphony, said this matchup with the Symphonic Band, conducted by  Director of Athletic Bands Dr. Adam Dalton, will bring a new musical approach to the city.

“This is a big change for this school,” Trinkle said. “The setup, the size—it’s just radically different from what’s happened here before.”

Dr. Richard Kravchack, director of the School of Music and Theatre, said he’s excited to present the first performance by the new band faculty members.

“Our program has been incredibly enriched by their artistry, pedagogical skill and commitment to student achievement,” Kravchak said.
