Kentucky Intercollegiate Band
Each year, every college and university band program in the Commonwealth is given the opportunity to nominate band members for the annual Kentucky Inter-Collegiate Band [The KIB]. From this nomination process, the membership is selected. The KIB rehearses and performs at the annual KMEA Music Convention in Louisville which takes place in February.
Our Georgetown College Tiger Band Scholars have always fared very well in the KIB [annually getting between four and six selected for this prestigious ensemble - which is a true point of pride for our work and efforts]. Kibbie is a great opportunity for our members to have the chance to play with such an extraordinary ensemble.
Recent guest conductors have included the legendary Paula Crider , Ray Cramer , Karel Husa , Jerry Junkin , H. Robert Reynolds , Felix Hauswirth , Allan McMurray , David Stanhope , James Croft  , James Curnow , Dr. Tom Lee , Dr. Frank Wickes , Professor Ronnie Wooten , Lazslo Marosi , Paula Crider , Ralph Hultgren , Craig Kirchhoff , Ray Cramer , Gary Green  and John Whitwell 
This year's  conductor for the KIB will be Allan
1997 to 1999, I served as the
KMEA "Coordinator" for the
KIB which for those two years, greatly enhanced our Georgetown College
involvement [the now-departed Flash & Ram-Jet, our much-beloved
Hoss-Cat, Worker Bees & Co. were invaluable] Then we had one year of
"normalcy" [1999-2000] - thankfully - as we returned to the role
of just a "participating" institution. In 2000-2001, because the duly-elected Coordinator, our good friend, Dr.
Hayes "flew the coop" [for which I shan't soon forgive him] and
the "Coordinator-Elect", Dr. Sue Creasap of Morehead had not had
the advantage of the one year "in training" for the role - we
were again drafted and I served, along with Dr. Creasap, as
"Co-Coordinator" [again with the invaluable help of assorted
"Worker Bees" including Little Jason, Hoss-Cat, Itzhak &
MIR]. In 2003, normalcy again returned. For the 2007 Kibbie experience -
we were again pressed into service and PLUR/Tink, Miles Per Gallon and I
had the incredible opportunity to work with Maestro Laszlo Marosi. For the
past two years normalcy and calmness remained a part of our world
as our Band Friend, Dr. Amy Acklin, ram-rodded the event. This year
 the Coordinator will be Dr. Mark Lynn. These days and times, I do serve on the permanent Kibbie Advisory
Committee [with Dr. Sue Creasap] and manage the Kibbie Web-Blog. Grrr...
In the fall, the nomination process will take place - and we will then select Band Scholars to represent Georgetown College at this prestigious event. It is truly a great opportunity to participate in this ensemble of the finest college and university band members from throughout the Commonwealth and under the baton of a world-class conductor.
