Saint Rose Wind Ensemble Director Named Guest Conductor at Top Hungarian Music University

ALBANY (November 5, 2015) — Last spring, when music faculty from the University of Szeged Hungary, performed at The College of Saint Rose, faculty and administrators from both schools discussed how the institutions might continue to collaborate. dr__robert_h_1That effort takes a big step forward this week when Professor Robert Hansbrough visits Szeged to teach a master class based on a book he wrote, judge a conducting contest, lead rehearsals and, on Sunday, conduct a concert with the university wind band.A 17-year member of the Saint Rose faculty, Hansbrough directs the College wind ensemble, the chamber wind group and the faculty Camerata Orchestra. He recently co-authored a book, Music for Concert Band, published by Meredith Music Publications, devoted to wind band literature. In Budapest he has decided to conduct “Circus Overture” by William Schuman, a work that the Saint Rose Wind Ensemble has performed, and “Concerto for Violin and Winds,” a modern and somewhat flashy violin work by Hungarian composer Hidas Frigyes. Hansbrough said the University of Szeged awarded him a grant to serve as guest conductor. And he noted that members of the Saint Rose music faculty are frequently invited to contribute their talents as guest artists.
