Dr. R. Tad Greig, director of instrumental activities and professor of music at Westminster College, is busy making music throughout the area during the first couple weeks of January. On Thursday, Jan. 4, Dr. Greig is guest conducting the Lawrence County All-Star Band, a collection of the top instrumentalists from the eight area high schools, at Westminster at 7 p.m. This is a one-day event, featuring both a junior high honors band and a senior high honors band.
"I have done this one in the past and really enjoy the opportunity to work with my area colleagues and their fine students," said Greig.
The following week, Greig travels to Warren, Pa., to be the guest conductor for the PMEA, District 2, High School Honors Band. This band is comprised of students from Crawford, Erie, Warren, McKean, Potter, Elk, and Cameron counties.
"This festival is very special to me personally as I started my teaching career 34 years ago in Warren County," Greig added.
Greig has been a guest conductor, clinician and guest lecturer throughout the Eastern United States. As a guest conductor, he has worked with junior high, senior high and collegiate bands throughout his career.
