A Welcome from Eric Whitacre – Why We Do What We Do
As musicians, we have a passion for music and music-making that gives us a chance to connect with others, to share our talents and discoveries, gaining the ability to grow as people and the knowledge that we are a part of something so much larger than ourselves.

United States Air Force Band of the West Concert
Lila Cockrell Theatre
Featuring the TCDA Choir
Saturday, July 23: 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM
Gary Green & Eric Whitacre with the U. S. Air Force Band of the West
This clinic will be a discussion of how “Lux Aurumque” came to be in the current band form, how it has changed, how it is different than the original, and how the band version has influenced the original version. Whitacre and Green will both conduct “Lux Aurumque” so that attendees can see and feel the difference in how they each interpret the music.
