Background:

The Symphonic Band, under the direction of Marc Dickey, consists of 95 wind and percussion players. These young musicians include music and music education majors, and talented students from a broad range of majors across university campus.

“The repertoire chosen for this concert,” shares Dickey, “consists of some of the best that the modern wind band has to offer. Of particular interest Ron Nelson’s modern piece describing a sunrise in Hiroshima. Nelson utilizes a variety of techniques unusual to wind repertoire including singing, rhythmic improvisation and glissandos, to create a stunning effect” He continues, “The concert also features a smaller ensemble in Gordon Jacob’s contemporary setting of quaint English folk songs for 12 players.”

Dickey came to Cal State Fullerton in 1988 as the department’s specialist in instrumental music education. In addition to conducting the Symphonic Band he teaches courses in the pre-credential, credential and the graduate music education program.

Dickey was previously associate director of bands at Oregon State University, where he conducted the Concert Band, the OSU Marching Band, the Jazz Ensemble, and served as assistant conductor of the Symphony Band. He has taught public school instrumental music at all levels, and has conducted public school and university instrumental music ensembles in Michigan, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Oregon, and California. Dickey has been awarded the National Band Association's Citation of Excellence.
