LU’s Brass to perform at distinctive convention

Lamar University’s Mary Morgan Moore Department of Music Brass Choir will be performing on tour in San Antonio, from Feb. 13-15, as part of the 2020 Texas Music Educators Association Convention.

The group will perform on Feb. 13 from 2-2:30 p.m. Additionally, the brass choir will be guest artists on TheBrass Choir Basilica of the Little Flower Concert Series on Feb. 14 from 7-8 p.m.

“The selection of the LU brass choir to perform a showcase concert at the 2020 TMEA Convention is quite an honor,” said Timothy Dueppen, assistant professor of music. “This performance will greatly add to the brass areas exposure at the convention and will further expand Lamar University’s reach and reputation within San Antonio.”

While at the convention students will have the opportunity to attend multiple clinics and performances by educators from around the U.S. “This will help our students expand their knowledge base for their future music education careers and hone needed musical skills in front of an unfamiliar audience,” said Dueppen.

Dueppen said LU’s music students have worked tirelessly on a great program featuring music from “Robin Hood Prince of Thieves,” “O Magnum Mysterium” and selections from “Pictures at an Exhibition.”
