Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson served as Professor of Music at Utah State University for 28 years, and just retired to Huntington Beach. While at the college he conducted both the orchestra and the choirs. He also taught Music 1010, one of the most highly sought classes on campus, in which he taught some 1500 college students to play recorder. He was also director of the Castle Recorder Consort and is a former member of Musica Reservata with Leslie Timmons.
He founded the Cache Children’s Choir 27 years ago, which is still operating today with five choirs and some 400 young singers. He has conducted across the country, including invitations to conduct his major work for orchestras and choirs, entitled “Prelude To Glory,” which was premiered by the National Symphony in Washington D.C. He and his wife, Cathy, are members of OCRS.

Here is the music Russ has chosen for us.

A note from the conductor:

Sopranos should note that three of our main pieces do not include Sop parts, so they should be prepared to play something else on the Sammartini and the Raindance.

We need serious soprano playing for the Sousa March and a Nino on the Wm. Tell. Practice would be advised.
Everybody else, the Wm. Tell overture is not that easy to read and will challenge us, though it has been simplified.  If you take a look at anything prior to rehearsal, please spend a few minutes on it.
A couple of the pieces are full score.  See you soon!
