Tarleton State is pleased to extend an offer for directors and their brass students to work with members of The Boston Brass.  The clinic and concert will be held on Sunday, April 28, 2012 on the Stephenville campus (a copy of the schedule is below).  We would be happy to have a few of your students participate or your entire brass section.  It is an experience that your students will be excited about attending and gain much pedagogy. 

As part of the clinic and concert, participants will receive:

-commemorative t-shirt;
-master class with members of the Boston Brass;
-free admission to the joint Wind Ensemble/Boston Brass concert;
-an opportunity to perform on stage with the Boston Brass and Tarleton Wind Ensemble in a “Band Day-style sendoff”;
-an 11X17 poster of the event (members of the Boston Brass will be available to autograph following the event).

For every school that has student participation, directors will receive:

-complimentary t-shirt;
-free admittance to any master class session (bring your horn if you wish);
-complimentary admission to the joint Wind Ensemble/Boston Brass concert (bring your camera when your students are performing on stage in the “Massed Band Day” finale);
-complimentary CD of the concert (feel free to share with your students);
-a signed and framed 11X17 poster of the event.

The student cost to participate in the event is $15.00.  Students who register by April 15, 2013 will receive one complimentary ticket for their admission to the concert featuring the Boston Brass and the Tarleton Wind Ensemble.  Students who register after April 15 will need to purchase a ticket at the Box Office. 

In addition, we also have a special on presale tickets for all parents, family and friends.  Tickets are $5 if purchased in advance from Dayle Cox in Room 105E of the Fine Arts Center from April 22 - 26. He can be contacted at 254-968-9291.  Tickets can also be purchased at the door on the day of the concert for $10.
