The Cavaliers Brass Go Big In Texas

| |

The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps is honored and proud to be featured as a performing artist at the 2022 Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA).

The Cavaliers will be busy in their own way during Super Bowl week with a series of events involving The University of Texas in Austin and the Texas Music Educators Association Convention in San Antonio.

A group of brass players representing the 2021 and 2022 corps will be heading to Austin for rehearsals to prepare for clinics, master classes and performances. The centerpiece will be the first clinic done by a drum corps at the TMEA convention titled “Go Play Outside! The Cavaliers Orchestral Approach to Brass” featuring brass staff Michael Martin, Drew Dickey, Kevin LeBeouf, and Freddy Martin. This will take place in San Antonio on Thursday February 10th from 2:30 to 3:30 in the CC Stars at Night Ballroom 3-4. We hope all of our alumni and friends at the convention will attend as admission is by convention badge only. Along with demonstration exercises, the brass will perform three pieces. One will be the “Adagietto” from Symphony No. 2 by Gustav Mahler arranged by Michael Martin. The clinic will close with a setting of Peter Meechan’s Song of Hope, written for and dedicated to Ryan Anthony, the Dallas Symphony trumpet player who started Cancer Blows, a foundation set up to raise awareness and money to further the research that has helped give their family a hope for a future following Ryan’s diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma. Professor Jerry Junkin of the University of Texas will be the guest conductor of this piece.
