Dear DCIS Parents and Guardians,
We are very fortunate to have percussionist and Juilliard alumnus Andrew Wangemann come to visit DCIS on Wednesday, 7 June. Andrew will be with us all day, visiting classes, giving demonstrations and observing the musical talent of our students.
Andrew earned his Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Studies from the Juilliard School and is now completing his final year of the Master’s program there.
He grew up in Orem, Utah, and as a high school student was a member of The Music Schoolʼs Crescent Super Band, a band that won a DOWNBEAT award in 2007 while he was a member.
In April 2013 Andrew performed with a Jazz quartet in an exciting collaboration with the Juilliard Dance Department, performing a work choreographed by Murray Louis titled, “Four Brubeck Pieces.”
In the 2016-17 school-year, he was a teaching fellow in the Morse Teaching Fellowship through which he taught music to 4th and 5th graders.
On April 28, 2017, Andrew released his debut CD, “Baby Babble” with his band, Andrew Wangemann’s JAZZ FOLK. The making of the album was in part funded by a project grant award through the Alan D. Marks Center for Career Services.
We are all looking forward to hearing Andrew’s drumming skills here at DCIS.
