Bruce Olson, Steve Boulka, and composer Brent Michael Davids presented a workshop "Meeting the Native American Standards in Secondary Band" for the 2013 Minnesota Music Educators Association (MMEA) Conference on February 15th. The workshop covered the 2 new works commissioned by the Minnesota Band Directors Association (MBDA) called "Indian Story Time" and "Indian Treaty Time." Steve Boulka presented the curriculum materials, Brent Michael Davids presented cultural information and the inspiration for the works, and Bruce Olson conducted the Blaine HS Concert band as they performed the new works. The session was sponsored by the MBDA, at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The new works will become available in mid April from the composer, and MBDA members get a significant discount!
