Quincy University Music Department faculty members recently participated at The Illinois Music Educator’s Conference College Fair. During the expo, the faculty members were able to meet with many potential students, parents, band directors, choir directors, QU Alumni, and university colleagues from other institutions.

During the conference, Dr. Christine Damm, assistant professor of music, presented a lecture to over 100 music educators from Illinois. The lecture was titled “Clarinet Playing Made Easy: Improve Your Section in 5 Easy Steps”.

“It was very exciting to share my passion for the clarinet with band directors from across the state.   It’s wonderful to be part of a conference that brings people together for a few days of learning about and creating music at a high level”, said Dr. Damm.

In addition, Bill Machold, assistant professor of music and director of bands, performed with the Quincy Community Concert Band. The band was the only community band selected from the entire state to perform at the music conference.
