NSSBE leadership at PASIC 2017
The NSSBE Board of Directors — Chris Tanner, Brandon Haskett and Tom Miller — participated in this year’s Mass Steel Band session at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention on Saturday, November 11th in Indianapolis. Steering Committee members Yuko Asada, Emily Lemmerman, and Eugene Novotney also played in the mass band. Miller, Lemmerman and fellow Steering Committee member Matt Dudack had pieces featured on the program. The repertoire for the concert was selected through a competitive process.
Newly minted PAS Hall of Fame member Andy Narell joined the band in impromptu fashion, playing an improvised solo on John Wooten’s arrangement of “Midday Oasis.”
Many of the participants in the mass band were educators from across the country. View the program here: PASIC Program.
Thanks to Rick Kurasz, professor at Western Illinois University, for organizing this session.
