From the Maslanka Archive features media and stories of David’s life and work. Did you work with David? Please consider contributing material.
It’s time for another edition of From the Maslanka Archive. We are actively building the Archive, but it won’t be ready for public viewing for a while. In the meantime, we wanted to show off some great items we’ve already collected.
We also wanted to inspire YOU to help grow the collection. We would love to feature you in an upcoming edition! Simply provide us with photos, video, audio, or stories of your time together and you may find them on the front page.
This week, we are excited to feature a classic performance of Give Us This Day with Gregg Hanson and the University of Arizona Wind Ensemble from the 2008 Western/Northwestern Division CBDNA Conference. The conference was held March 20-22, 2008 in Reno, Nevada.
While director of bands at the University of Arizona, Gregg performed nearly every major piece of David’s and commissioned several. He is responsible for commissioning perhaps David’s most important work, the 1996 Mass.
A Very Special Thanks to Gregg Hanson for providing this recording.
Would you like to be featured in an upcoming edition of From the Maslanka Archive? It’s easy! Please send us anything you have (picture, audio, video, concert poster, concert program, correspondence with David, etc.) and we will feature you!
