CCM's new Director of Wind Studies, Glenn D. Price

CCM ushers in a new school year with a thrilling lineup of fall Winds Series events and a new Director of Wind Studies, Glenn D. Price. Price comes to CCM from the University of Calgary, where he conducted the University of Calgary Wind Ensemble, and is also an internationally acclaimed conductor, appearing with wind orchestras and festivals around the world.

Under Price’s direction, CCM’s Wind Symphony and Chamber Players will perform a vast array of stirring pieces of the Winds repertoire, including memorable jazz numbers, motifs encompassing the musical worlds of Britain and France and the unmistakable sounds of Stravinsky.

Also this fall, Terence Milligan will lead CCM’s Wind Ensemble on a journey from Beethoven to Ives and will highlight Cincinnati’s own Henry Fillmore in Two Cincinnati Marches.

Price is recognized as one of the leading international conductors of today. He has conducted in over twenty countries on five continents, covering the gamut from professional chamber players to 450 piece string orchestras, symphony orchestras and wind ensembles to mass bands of over 1500 musicians.

He is best known as a major authority on music for wind groups. In this capacity he has appeared as featured conductor for many professional organizations, including the World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles (WASBE), the College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA), the American Bandmasters Association (ABA), the MidWest Clinic, the Music Educators National Conference (MENC), the Encontro Latino Americano (Brazil), the Shizuoka Festival (Japan), the British Association for Symphonic Bands and Wind Ensembles (BASBWE) and others. Price has conducted many renowned soloists such as Evelyn Glennie, Christian Lindberg, Ney Rosauro, Jens Lindemann, Alain Trudel, Roger Webster, Kenneth Tse, Rick Todd, John Marcellus, Simone Rebello and Michael Burritt.
