“Energize Your Program” With a Commissioned Piece

Clinic Synopsis:

A commissioned piece is a great way to energize your program in a post pandemic world. Not only is your program adding a wonderful new song to the repertoire, the students gain from the experience of having a new commission written especially for them. Stan Mauldin and Dr. Leroy Osmon will share their experiences over a two-decade relationship that has resulted in over a dozen new pieces added to the repertoire and the uniqueness of a conductor-composer relationship.
