Chris Dickey presents tuba, euphonium recital
A highlight of the program is Francois Glorieux's "Concerto for Euphonium," which Dickey will perform with the WSU Wind Ensemble at the 2013 Northwest Regional Tuba-Euphonium Conference later this year. Additional selections include music written by John Stevens, Eddy Debons and Bernard Krol. Dickey will collaborate with Kristin Elgersma, assistant professor of piano in the Lionel Hampton School of Music at the University of Idaho.
In addition to teaching tuba and euphonium, Dickey conducts the brass ensemble, teaches music theory, coaches chamber music and performs in the WSU faculty brass quintet. He is a founding member of Northwest Brass, a variable-instrumentation chamber ensemble specializing in contemporary brass literature. Other performance credits include the Walla Walla and Washington-Idaho symphonies, the Chicago and St. Louis brass bands, the National Wind Ensemble, the St. Louis Wind Symphony and the Eastern Symphony Orchestra.
Dickey has made solo appearances with such groups as the Eastern Symphony Orchestra, the Iowa Chamber Winds, the University of Iowa Concert Band and the Edwardsville Municipal Band. He has performed at regional and international tuba-euphonium conferences and attended or performed in master classes with several leading tuba and euphonium pedagogues such as Brian Bowman, Oystein Baadsvik, Steven Mead, Alan Baer, Demondrae Thurmon, Gene Pokorny and Carol Jantsch.
Dickey is finishing his doctorate of music degree from Northwestern University as a student of the world-renowned tuba player Rex Martin. He earned a master of arts degree from the University of Iowa and a bachelor of music degree, summa cum laude, from Eastern Illinois University. He holds memberships in the International Tuba-Euphonium Association, the College Music Society, the National Association for Music Education and the National Association of Collegiate Wind and Percussion Teachers.
