Dr. Larry Markiewicz is excited to make his debut with the Mid-Continent band on their final two programs of the 2020 season. For the past two years Dr. Larry (as his students like to call him) has held the post of Professor of Music at ICC, and has become a fixture in many SE Kansas music rooms serving as a friend and mentor to many music educators in the region. Earlier this winter, he served as a guest conductor of four (4) different Honor Bands/Orchestras. For the past 25 years he has been in frequent demand as an adjudicator for solo ensemble festivals and marching band competitions across the United States. Dr. Markiewicz holds a Master’s degree in wind band conducting from the John J. Cali School (Montclair State University) and a DMA in Orchestral Conducting from the Mason Gross School of the Arts (Rutgers University). In his free time Dr. Markiewicz enjoys cooking, following the NY Yankees, and is an avid bowler holding a 200+ average.
This weeks Larry will be directing the band to the theme, Christmas in July. We hope to see you all there!
