Northwestern music program welcomes all to participate in Community Band

January 26, 2016

Collegiate students, high school students and community members alike are welcome to participate in the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Community Band each Tuesday from 6:55-8:45 p.m. in Fine Arts 310 on the Alva campus.

Dr. Marc Decker, director of instrumental music and music education, said 10 community members and 25 college students attended the last practice. New members are welcome to attend.

“The reason for the ensemble is to gain interest within the community,” Decker said.

The Community Band performs a variety of music including older and newer selections, Decker said. The first concert will feature guest conductor, Dr. Ed Huckeby on Sunday, Feb. 28, at 2 p.m. Huckeby served as the director of bands at Northwestern for a number of years before moving into an administrative role at the university prior to his retirement in June of 1998.

For more information on the Community Band or the instrumental music program at Northwestern contact Decker by phone at (580) 327-8191 or by email at mddecker@nwosu.edu.
