High School Wind Ensemble studies musical excellence
with SUNY Fredonia professor

The Hilton High School Wind Ensemble recently participated in a two-hour clinic with Dr. Paula Holcomb, wind ensemble director and conductor at SUNY Fredonia. Highly sought after as an adjudicator and guest conductor, Dr. Holcomb has conducted bands and orchestras in 39 states, South America, Australia, Mexico, Europe, and Canada. She has presented Conducting Symposiums in Canada, South America, Australia and the United States. During the clinic, Dr. Holcomb focused on rhythmic accuracy as part of the IB Middle Years Programme planner, in addition to musicality, precision and musical excellence.
