Welcome<br />

Music Educators,<br />

Parents, & Guests<br />

.Warmest welcome to the <strong>2018</strong> <strong>TMEA</strong> Tennessee <strong>All</strong>-<strong>State</strong> Performances.<br />

While this event is an annual program for our state, many of the students you will be<br />

hearing are participating in a Tennessee <strong>All</strong>-<strong>State</strong> Ensemble for the first time. But<br />

whether it is a student’s first time or a return performance, it is a unique experience<br />

that all students will carry with them for the rest of their lives. These young people<br />

represent the future, not just in music but as leaders of their community and advocates<br />

for music in our schools.<br />

These young musicians are the best from across the state. They have rehearsed and<br />

practiced for years to get to this place in their lives. The teachers and parents of these<br />

students are well aware that most of these students excel in more than just music.<br />

They are strong academically; they are school leaders, athletes, and volunteers; they<br />

are the leaders of the next generation.<br />

What you see on stage represents the finest in music instruction in Tennessee.<br />

Hundreds of school music teachers, supported by their school administrators, have<br />

spent countless hours organizing this program to provide the very best musical experience<br />

possible in Tennessee. In addition to the dedicated and hard-working staff and<br />

area chairs identified in the program, there are so many others behind the scenes who<br />

have helped make the Tennessee <strong>All</strong>-<strong>State</strong> Ensemble experience possible.<br />

To the parents of these students: Thank you for what you’ve already done to encourage<br />

your child’s music pursuits.<br />

To their music teachers: Thank you for the nurture and care you show your students<br />

every day. There is no way to measure the impact you have on these students.<br />

To our guests: The Tennessee Music Education Association is so pleased to have you<br />

share in this musical experience.<br />

And to these young musicians on stage: Students, please thank your parents and your<br />

teachers for all they have done for you. Thank your friends and relatives for their support.<br />

Congratulations to you for your achievements and for being where you are today.<br />

<strong>2018</strong> | TENNESSEE ALL-STATE ENSEMBLES<br />

Tennessee <strong>All</strong>-<strong>State</strong> 11th and 12th Grade<br />

Symphony Orchestra<br />

Jeffrey Grogan, Conductor<br />

Jeffrey Grogan is an internationally-known conductor and teacher who has spent his career<br />

dedicated to the pursuit of his craft and nurturing musical excellence among young musicians.<br />

His humanistic leadership style, coupled with his command as a musical communicator, has<br />

earned him an impressive reputation with audiences and music programs both in the U.S. and<br />

abroad. Grogan considers his work with young musicians the cornerstone of his career.<br />

After earning a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Stephen F. Austin <strong>State</strong> University,<br />

he continued on to a Master of Music in Conducting/Horn Performance from the University<br />

of Michigan. He then taught grades six through twelve in DeSoto, Texas. Expanding upon<br />

this foundation, he became a college professor, teaching for over a decade at the University<br />

of Michigan, Ithaca College and Baylor University where he taught conducting and trained<br />

future music educators. He is also the former Associate Director of Bands and Marching Band<br />

Director at the University of Michigan and Baylor University. Mr. Grogan takes pride in the<br />

fact that his students now play in major symphony orchestras and are successful conductors,<br />

teachers and citizens across the country.<br />

Grogan serves as Director of Orchestral Activities and Professor of Music at Oklahoma City<br />

University and Artistic Director of the Oklahoma Youth Orchestras. Previously, Grogan lived<br />

and worked in the New York City Metropolitan area for eleven years. He served as Education<br />

and Community Engagement Conductor of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, and as<br />

Conductor and Artistic Director of the NJSO Youth Orchestras, the InterSchool Orchestras<br />

of New York and the New Jersey Youth Symphony. His youth orchestras have performed to<br />

capacity crowds at some of the greatest concert halls in the world, including Carnegie Hall, the<br />

Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center and the Musikverein in Vienna. He has appeared as a guest<br />

conductor at the University of Georgia, Indiana University, the Manhattan School of Music,<br />

and the Mannes School of Music Pre-College Division. He has also conducted performances<br />

with the Little Orchestra Society of New York, the Reno Philharmonic, Adelphi Chamber<br />

Orchestra and the New York Concerti Sinfonietta.<br />

In addition, Mr. Grogan was founding Artistic Director of two El Sistema inspired music programs,<br />

the Paterson Music Project (PMP) in Paterson, New Jersey and the NJSO CHAMPS in<br />

Newark, New Jersey. After only four years, PMP flourished from 30 students to over 300. These<br />

programs have made a huge impact on these young people, their families, and communities.<br />

Mr. Grogan has served as adjudicator, conductor, and clinician for many prestigious national and<br />

international festivals including the Honor Orchestra of America sponsored by Music for <strong>All</strong>; the<br />

Association for Music in International Schools Orchestra (Singapore); the National Orchestra Cup<br />

at Lincoln Center; and the Honors Performance Series Orchestra and Band at Carnegie Hall. Other<br />

recent international appearances include Harpa Concert Hall in Iceland; in Bangkok, Thailand;<br />

and at the Opera House in Sydney, Australia. Mr. Grogan has also conducted numerous all-state<br />

orchestras and bands throughout the U.S. including his home state of Texas, among others. He has<br />

also enjoyed leading professional development workshops for school districts across the country.<br />

Grogan is extremely grateful to the inspiring teachers he has learned from throughout his life<br />

including Charles Gavin, Gary Lewis, H. Robert Reynolds, Gustav Meier, Stephen Peterson,<br />

Larry Rachelff, Don Schleicher, Carl St. Clair, and John Whitwell.<br />

every level of wind band performance from beginning band programs through high school<br />

and university wind ensembles as well as adult community bands. In 2014 Floyd retired as<br />

<strong>State</strong> Director of Music at the University of Texas at Austin where he coordinated all facets<br />

the state for 30 years. He now holds the title Texas <strong>State</strong> Director of Music Emeritus. He also<br />

serves as Musical Director and Conductor of the Austin Symphonic Band that is viewed to be<br />

one of the premier adult concert bands in America. In addition he maintains an active schedule<br />

distinguished service and contributions to bands, orchestras and music education. In 2014<br />

he was inducted into the National Band Association Academy of Wind and Percussion Arts<br />

considered to be the “academy award” for wind band conductors. The same year he was also<br />

honored with the Kappa Kappa Phi Distinguished Service to Music medal. Most recently he<br />

was recognized as the 2017 Texas Legendary Bandmaster by the Dallas Wind Symphony, Jerry<br />
