The Faculty Are Coming, The Faculty Are Coming!

I’ve said before that school visits are the best way to get to know a school. If you are unable to make it to campus, however, consider seeing if we are coming to you. The Music Admissions Office at Illinois works hard to provide a comprehensive calendar of what events are faculty are involved in and where the will be performing.

As an example, our double bass instructor, Michael Cameron, recently took his bass quartet to Libertyville High School in the Chicago area. Thanks to Jason Heath for this nice write up.

Over the next few months, you can see the Illinois Brass Quintet in Texas, Professor Louis Bergonzi conducting the Nebraska All-State Orchestra, Oboe professor John Dee performing in Florida and Georgia, and Professor Nathan Gunn in the Los Angeles Opera production of The Magic Flute.

Have you ever had a chance to see a faculty member perform? What was the experience like? Let us know in the comments.
