Happy Fri-yay everyone! The SUMB has a couple more Section Leader Spotlights coming your way!
One of our Tuba Section Leaders is Matt Quezada! Matt is from Elgin, IL and is also one of the Music Directors for The Sour Sitrus Society this year! Matt spent this summer as a Head Lifeguard at his local pool. Additionally, he had the opportunity to travel with the Hendrick Chapel Choir to Mexico in May. Other than that, he’s just chilling and waiting for band camp! Some advice Matt has for Rookies is to always bring a pencil and your music to rehearsal and to always try new things!
Over in the Clarinet section, we have Tyler Youngman! Tyler grew up in Oswego, NY and traveled with Matt to Mexico with the Hendricks Chapel Choir! In addition to his fun travels, Tyler was an intern for an NPR radio show, Sound Beat. The show talked about music history and 20th century recordings. If Tyler could give newbies a piece of advice, it would be to meet as many people as you possibly can! It is the coolest thing in the world to be around 150+ people who LOVE band just as much as you!
