in the Georgetown College Tiger Band Program, as with the arts in
general, allow students the significant opportunity to vivify,
intensify, enhance and clarify human experiences and emotions.
A major goal of our Georgetown College Instrumental Program is to
provide an environment that nurtures students' understanding of the
dynamic tension always present in a "quality" performance of
fine band literature. This
environment will in turn lead to positive experiences which should prove
to be both musically
rewarding and personally enjoyable
for Band Scholars.
a result of experiences provided in the Georgetown College Tiger Bands, a
Band Scholar will be able to:
develop their musicianship to the highest possible level.
discover their level of musical ability and talent and provide
experiences with and about music to
develop these talents.
become admitted to a creative mode by which they can enrich their
lives through expression and respond to the expression of others.
develop resources for a rich and rewarding life.
perform quality instrumental literature from varying genres in an
environment of excellence.
develop an understanding of the group and self-discipline required
to maintain performance standards of the highest caliber.
participation in our Tiger Bands should lead towards the continuing growth
and development of Band Scholars and the Director, alike - as we keep
the ancient Greek concept of Balance: a balanced intellectual life;
a balanced spiritual life; a balanced physical life. Our Tiger Bands are
designed to enhance the most basic concepts of a Liberal Arts Education
- we do not necessarily perform music solely for the sake of the music
itself - rather - for the extraordinary "tangibles"
which are the logical resultants of participation with and about high
quality music - in a high caliber ensemble setting of excellence.
