CCM’s Director of Wind Studies Rodney Winther was recently given one of the Venezuelan state of Táchira’s highest honors for directing the state orchestral band during the 450th anniversary celebrations of the Táchira capital city of San Cristóbal.

Besides standing ovations at every performance, Winther, who has conducted the state band several times over the past 15 years, received the Manuel Felipe Rugeles medal, the state’s highest cultural award, from Táchira Governor César Pérez Vivas. Several diplomatic representatives, including U.S. Embassy Cultural Affairs Officer Sally Hodgson and Cultural Affairs Specialist Elena Broszkowski, were awarded buttons of merit by Mayor Mónica de Méndez and Governor César Pérez Vivas for helping to bring Winther to the city.
