Bravo to the Hopatcong Wind Ensemble for an OUTSTANDING performance at the Sussex County Team Arts Festival. The ensemble received the highest rating of “Distinguished” in all four performance captions.
Adjudicator David Martin, professional French hornist and professor of music at Rutgers and Sussex County Community College, said during his clinic with the band, “Listening to your band play and working with them makes me miss teaching in public schools”.
He accepted an invitation to come and work as a special guest before the ensemble performs the same “excellent repertoire” (as he commented) in the Nashville School Music Festival in April.
The ensemble performed Bernstein’s “Danzon”, Whitacre’s “Seal Lullaby”, and Balmage’s “Among the Clouds”.
