The Band Music of Yukiko Nishimura
Clinician(s): Yukiko Nishimura
We are excited to welcome award winning composer, Yukiko Nishimura! Born and raised in Kyoto, Japan, and now based in Los Angeles, Yukiko will talk in-depth about her compositions for band as well as provide insight on her composition process and what inspires her to continue to write for such a diverse setting of instruments as the concert band. Among her honors are a special mention at the 15th and 26th International Competition for Original Composition for Band in Corciano, Italy, and the 6th Aoyama Award. We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Yukiko and hope to see many of our Bay Area band directors at this session!
