We’ll have just the right music for you at the Pender’s booth during the Oklahoma Bandmasters Summer Convention. Anticipate a great Pender’s selection of marching band, concert band, and jazz ensemble music, along with a variety of band texts, CD’s, DVD’s, music gifts and accessories! Do you have something in particular in mind? Call our OKC store at 800-772-8405 in advance – with your special request – and we’ll be glad to bring it to the show just for you to review.

The 2017-20 OSSAA concert band PML list has been announced and we will have the new additions in stock at the convention.

As a special treat this year, Jerry West will be a guest in our booth when he is available during exhibit hours. Come see Jerry and the Pender’s staff at the Renaissance Hotel & Convention Center in Tulsa July 18–19. See you there!

OMEA & Student Motivation

The Oklahoma Music Educators Convention/Conference begins this week, so preparations for the Pender’s Music exhibit are in the final stages. There are many interesting clinics that are to be presented in the Band Division. One of them will feature Harry Haines (Professor of Music, Emeritus) and Russ Teweleit (Associate Director of Bands), from West Texas A&M University. They’ll be addressing student motivation and assessment.

The clinic will also include audio and video recordings of three band/wind ensemble classics: Armenian Dances (Reed), Lincolnshire Posy (Grainger), and La Gazza Ladra (Rossini). The young bands featured in the audio and video are from Professor Haines’s public school teaching days, which just goes to show you that the classics, aged though they may be, never seem to lose their allure, for both audiences and students alike. They challenge the students, and impress the crowds. What’s not to like about that?

Who: Harry Haines & Russ Teweleit, Clinicicans

What: Student Motivation

Where: Oklahoma Music Educators Convention ( OMEA, Tulsa, OK Convention Center)

When: 8:00 to 8:50am, Friday, January 21st, 2011
