Dr. Beth Peterson – CUWS

Hello! My name is Beth Peterson and I wanted to introduce myself, as I will be the conductor of the CU Wind Symphony this fall while CJT is on leave. I look forward to working with and meeting all of you. My full time job is at Ithaca College where I conduct the Symphonic Band, teach conducting and supervise student teachers in music education. If you are new to CU, I would like to encourage you to check out this website further and to sign up for an audition time. If you are returning to CU, I would also encourage you to sign up for an audition time especially if you were a member of the CU Winds last year. I have chosen some great repertoire for this fall (including William Byrd Suite, Children’s March and a new John Mackey piece called Undertow) and I am really excited about our semester together! If you have any questions, please email me at: epeterson {at} ithaca(.)edu

Dr. Steve Peterson – CUWE

Greetings Cornell wind and percussion players! I am excited to meet you and get to know you as visiting conductor of the CU Wind Ensemble during the upcoming fall semester. My name is Steve Peterson. I am currently the wind ensemble conductor at the Ithaca College School of Music. It is my real pleasure and honor to be “filling in” for CJT during her sabbatical. I have heard the CU Wind Ensemble on many occasions in the past twelve years, and look forward to making some great music with you. I think you’ll enjoy the planned repertoire, and I encourage ALL wind players, both new and returning, to audition this fall. Please feel free to contact me with questions at speterson {at} ithaca(.)edu. I look forward to meeting you soon. Here’s to a great fall!
