Texas Woman’s music students are future teachers and leaders. They are taught by leading experts in the music industry. TWU student-musicians work in and outside of the classroom and perform across the state and nation at concert halls, festivals, and conferences.
The TWU Trombone and Flute Choirs are instrumental ensembles in the Division of Music. They perform a varied repertoire of original compositions and transcriptions. Membership for both choirs requires prior experience and an audition process.
Traveling to festivals and conferences provides opportunities and learning experience for our student-musicians as they hone their skills and explore the many facets and styles of their instrument including playing techniques, teaching, and making.
Both choirs have been provided two exciting travel opportunities this summer. Through this fundraising initiative, we hope to meet our fundraising goal of $10,000 to assist with the cost of registration, lodging, and transportation for both music groups.
The Texas Woman's University Trombone Choir is composed of current TWU students and is directed by TWU Adjunct Instructor of Music Michelle Flowers, DMA.
The Trombone Choir has been invited to perform at the 2022 International Trombone Festival in Conway, Arkansas from July 13-16, 2022. “Their submission was accepted from a very competitive pool of applicants, and we are so proud that they will have the opportunity to represent TWU and our Division of Music,” Dr. Pam Youngblood, Director of the School of Arts and Design and Professor of Music. In addition to showcasing their work, the Trombone choir will have opportunities to attend panel discussions, performances, and workshops while networking with other professionals.
The award-winning Texas Woman’s University Flute Choir is composed of current TWU students and directed by Professor of Music and Director of TWU School of Arts & Design, Pamela Youngblood, DMA.
The Flute Choir has been invited to perform at the 50th Annual Flute Association event in Chicago, Illinois from August 11-14, 2022. The choir’s proposal was accepted from a competitive pool of applicants, and they look forward to representing TWU and the Division of Music.
In addition to showcasing the work of our student-musicians, this event opportunity will include panel discussions, presentations, workshops, and performances featuring world-renowned artists and ensembles. There is no better time or place experience for student flutists than the National Flute Association’s annual convention.
