DCI columnist Michael Boo to premiere music compositions with the Windiana concert band in China

by Drum Corps International

DCI writer Michael Boo, revered for his weekly "Fanfare" columns on DCI.org, will take a two-week tour with the Windiana concert band this summer in early June. Boo, who holds a bachelor's degree in music education and a master's degree in music theory and composition, spends much of his time aside from his duties as a regular writer for Drum Corps International composing music. He was recently picked up by TRN Music Publishing, and his first composition, "Variation Suite" (a Grade 3 concert band selection) is being released this coming week. Among featuring band compositions by prominent American and Chinese composers, Windiana will premiere four China-inspired works by Boo titled "Visions of Xi Hu," "Spirit of Jasmine Flower," "Shenzhou Fanfare" and "Song of Jigong."
