Reaching Out

Lincoln, NE - On Tuesday, April 8, 2014, Lincoln Municipal Band members Dean Haist (trumpet), Ric Ricker (low brass), Rebecca Van de Bogart (flute), Ed Love (woodwinds), and Joe Holmquist (percussion) visited two Lincoln middle schools to share their skills and passion for music.

The clinicians first stopped at Mickle Middle School, where 7th grade band students of Mary Pfoltner received instruction and interacted with the professional performers in master classes. This was followed by a full ensemble rehearsal, where the clinicians joined their respective sections to assist the students with their individual parts and the overall musical effect.

Next, the clinicians traveled to Park Middle School for their second visit of the morning. The students in Jai Burks' 7th and 8th grade bands were treated to breakout sessions and a full ensemble rehearsal that included the clinicians. The students, teachers, and professional musicians all had a wonderful experience making music together.

The Lincoln Municipal Band was formed over one hundred years ago, making it Nebraska's oldest professional music organization. Beginning in 1911, the Lincoln Municipal Band has presented an annual series of free Sunday evening summer concerts during July and August in Antelope Park. These free concerts are the most popular events of the Lincoln Parks and Recreation summer performance series and boast regular crowds of over 1500 citizens from Lincoln and surrounding communities.

John Shildneck, a past conductor of the Lincoln Municipal Band, began a tradition of inviting high school students to solo with the band in order to gain experience playing in front of large audiences and performing with professional musicians from the community. In keeping with this spirit, talented young musicians from Nebraska are chosen by audition to perform as a soloist with the Lincoln Municipal Band for one concert each season as the John Shildneck Young Artist Competition Winner.

The Lincoln Municipal Band presents annual educational outreach concerts and workshops in Lincoln area schools with the support of Dietze Music, Dillon Foundation, the Nebraska Arts Council and Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and the Rogers Foundation.
