Professor Emily Threinen Elected to American Bandmasters Association and Selected to be a Part of Yamaha Master Educators Group
In 2016, Emily Threinen (bands) was elected to the American Bandmasters Association, and will be inducted in March 2017. This is considered a high honor and achievement – as one is invited by a current member, extensive materials are reviewed, and a lengthy vetting process and voting is completed by the membership. Additionally, Threinen is part of a new initiative with Yamaha: the Yamaha Master Educators group. This is a group of wind band conductors in the nation who have been selected by Yamaha to lead the mission. Yamaha will be supporting this group in education-focused clinics and workshops, as needed.
