Music Professor Performing Nationwide
Dr. Thomas Bough, Associate Professor in the NIU School of Music and Director of Athletic Bands, completed his composition "Suite Tuba" for tuba soloist and wind ensemble during 2010. As a tubist, Tom has been invited to perform his work ten times since the work's premiere in early November, 2010. Performance venues include several Illinois high schools, and with the U.S. Army Band in Washington, D.C., with the Scottsdale (AZ) Concert Band, and this weekend at the Midwest Regional Tuba-Euphonium Conference to be held at Central Michigan University.
Tom premiered the work here at NIU, with his colleague Dr. Ronnie Wooten as conductor. His most recent performance was with the Metamora (IL) High School Wind Ensemble, which received great coverage from the local NBC affiliated television station, and the segment featuring Tom can be viewed here.
