School of the Ozarks hosts Mark Twain Conference Band Clinic

S of O places third in band clinic on April 5, 2018School of the Ozarks placed third in the annual Mark Twain Conference Band Clinic held on the campus of College of the Ozarks.

POINT LOOKOUT, MO. — School of the Ozarks hosted several area schools for the Mark Twain Conference Band Clinic on April 5, 2018, in the College of the Ozarks Jones Auditorium.

The clinic had more than 80 student participants from a variety of area schools including New Covenant Academy, School of the Ozarks, and Chadwick High School.

Unlike previous years, this year’s conference did not include an afternoon concert. Instead, each band came to the Jones Auditorium to participate in a one-hour clinic with a musical expert to help assist them in perfecting their skills.

“The emphasis this year is on each school’s band and the two pieces they play for the guest clinician,” said John Cheary, director of bands at School of the Ozarks. “After the students played their selected musical pieces, the clinician spent the remainder of the hour giving suggestions of how to become a better musical organization.”

For additional information, contact John Cheary, director of bands at School of the Ozarks, at (417) 690-2380.
