Schwob graduate Joshua Kearney to conduct Marine Band

Joshua Kearney (2012 M.M. in Wind Band Conducting, 2009 B.M. in Music Education) will conduct The President's Own Marine Band in concert June 16th in Washington D.C. As one of only three conductors in the country chosen through the National Band Association's Young Conductor Mentor Project (for conductors under age 29), Joshua will conduct a world premiere composition with "The President's Own," the nation's oldest continually active professional music organization, established in 1789 and conducted for 12 years by John Philip Sousa. Now a doctoral conducting student at Michigan State University, Joshua will present next December a joint session entitled “The Young Director’s Guide to Commissioning” at the 2015 Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago. Congratulations, Josh!
