Maestro

Dr. Robert Hamrick is currently volunteering as the director of the Orange Community Band. He played first trombone for the Pittsburgh Symphony under Andr√© Previn, has a freakishly good ear, and has a lifetime of experience teaching and directing various ensembles. His analysis of our playing and his clearly stated, and astonishingly on point, comments mean each rehearsal has at least a few master class moments. Since we are a wind ensemble with percussion, some comments relate directly to those instruments, while others can have a more general application. Posts with the "maestro" label are based on things he's said in rehearsal.
