Wind Symphony Selected for Performance
The Southeast Missouri State University Wind Symphony was selected to play for the Missouri Music Educators Association state convention in January, marking the first time in almost a decade Southeast has been invited to perform.
Dr. Martin Reynolds, director of the Southeast Wind Symphony, says 142 ensembles submitted recordings to be considered for performance at the state meeting, and only three university groups were selected to perform.
“We were honored to be selected to perform for our colleagues and friends from around Missouri,” says Reynolds. “We are striving to build the Wind Symphony to a level of performance acceptable to state, regional and national conference.”
The Missouri Music Educators Association is a federated association of the National Association for Music Education which includes nearly 80,000 music educators.
“It is a great way to show the rest of the state what we are doing at Southeast,” says Dr. Chris Goeke, chair of the Southeast
Department of Music. “And, it is an excellent performance experience for our students.”
