Professor Emily Threinen Elected to American Bandmasters Association and Selected to be a Part of Yamaha Master Educators Group

October 9, 2016

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.
