Welcome Luau


2017 Texas Orchestra Director of the Year Diana Gilliland As a fourth grade student at Coldwell Elementary School, Diana Gilliland decided to play the violin when she first heard melodious and captivating sounds come alive from a vinyl record of Czech composer Smetana’s symphonic poem The Moldau. Mrs. Gladys L’Huillier began to describe eloquently what each instrument represented as the music unfolded, but her voice fell distant when the power of the string section took over the composition. It was these beautiful orchestral colors and sounds of strings that established Diana’s love of music and resolve to play the violin--and ultimately teach. Diana’s teaching career began in 1980 at Johnson, Western Hills, and Mesita Elementary Schools in the El Paso Independent School District. In 1983 she transitioned to Lamar Elementary and El Paso High School, and for 11 years she directed the Lamar Elementary, Wiggs Middle School, and El Paso High School orchestras. Now in her 37th year of teaching, she continues to direct the orchestra at Wiggs Middle School, a program she started in 1986. For 30 years, she has led an EPISD Summer Orchestra Program for students of all ages. Diana was also a founding member, teacher, and conductor with the El Paso Philharmonic Strings for 20 years. Diana’s orchestras consistently receive superior ratings at Region 22 concert festivals. Many of her students perform with the All-Region Middle and High School Orchestras, and selected students achieve higher levels at the Texas All-State Orchestra programs. Community service, integrity, and mentorship have been seminal pillars of her programs. Since 1991, her orchestras have performed in the University of Texas at El Paso graduation ceremonies. Other service events include performances for the Ronald McDonald House, Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home, annual summer performances at adult care centers, and various community events. Diana strongly believes in exposing and nurturing children in music education at all levels. Her collaboration with the El Paso Pro Musica program has led to visits to her schools from world renowned cellist Zuill Bailey, pianist Navah Perlman, and other guest artists.

Diana holds a Bachelor of Music and Master of Music in Music Education. Her education background includes seminars at UCLA, the University of San Francisco, and the University of Denver where she met and observed Dr. Shinichi Suzuki working his internationally known methods. Diana is an active member of TODA, TMEA, Mu Omicron, and the American Federation of Musicians. For many years she was the region judging panel chair and has hosted AllRegion, Concert and Sight Reading Contests and All-State Taping Auditions. At the state level she has conducted reading sessions, and served as judge for seating auditions and SightReading contests. Diana also is performing her 38th season with the El Paso Symphony Orchestra first violin section and has performed with El Paso Pro Musica, El Paso Opera, The Bruce Nehring Consort, the Las Cruces Symphony, and the Angerstein String Quartet. She was selected Teacher of the Year at Wiggs Middle School (1993, 2001) and in 2014 for El Paso High School. Diana has received a number of other recognitions, but is most honored and humbled to be selected as the 2017 Texas Orchestra Director of the Year.

Jennifer Elaine Lemin August 30, 1981- March 28, 2017

Jennifer Elaine Lemin, 35, passed away after a two-year battle with breast cancer, at her home in Arlington, in the presence of family on Tuesday, March 28, 2017. The memorial service was held on Saturday, April 8, at Fielder Road Baptist Church. Jennifer was born Aug. 30, 1981, to Steven and Janet Elaine Brown in Fort Worth, Texas. Musical from the start, she began playing the cello in fifth grade, and eventually dedicated her life to emphasizing the importance of music and the arts in North Texas. She graduated from Arlington High School in 1999 with honors. While pursuing a degree in music education at the University of Texas at Arlington, she met her husband, Don Lemin. They married in 2002, and she graduated with a Bachelor of Music cum laude in 2004. Jennifer began her teaching career in Grand Prairie ISD at Reagan Middle School, before moving to the Arlington ISD where she taught at Little Elementary School and Martin High School. Jennifer’s love for music and her students poured from her, so stepping away from teaching when her disease got too difficult was one of her hardest decisions. However, her cancer could not diminish her ambition, and she began her Masters of Music in Instrumental Conducting at Southern Methodist University in 2015. She balanced her treatments with classes, all while remaining heavily involved in Arlington Youth Symphony. Whether she was rooting on the Cowboys, Rangers, or attending AYS and DSO concerts, Jennifer was happiest supporting the things she cared about in the company of those she loved. With all her strength and passion for life, she never let her disease hold her back. She continued traveling to new places and trying new food with her husband (who adored her and cherished their life together) and family, as well as spending precious time with her beloved niece, Charlotte. Jennifer was preceded in death by her mother, Janet Elaine Brown, and her grandfather, Bascomb “Pete” Morris. She is survived by her husband of 15 years, Don Lemin; her grandmother, Billie Morris; father, Steven Brown; sisters, Leslie LaChance and husband, Jody, and Stephanie Gibbs and husband, Kieron; dear stepsons, Nick Lemin and wife, Heather, Nathan Lemin; nieces and special nephew, Charlotte, Ethan, and Emma. Jennifer was gifted, compassionate, and fierce, with a smile that could light up an auditorium, and we will always remember her sparkle. Memorial contributions may be made to The Jennifer Lemin Memorial Fund, P.O. Box 14580, Arlington, TX 76094. 10

Product Showcase 13: The Bornoff Approach for School Orchestras – Session 2

CC 216

Jeffrey Lastrapes, clinician Jennifer Fox, presider Recent generations of string players have made technical strides beyond our wildest expectations. Left hand technique is accurate, supple and fluid. The trade off in many cases is the lack of a singing sound on these naturally singing instruments. “The Bow of Breath” is an exploration of the vocal aspects of string playing with the bow as the freeing and liberating tool for expression. Discussion and demonstration of the mechanics, both with muscle use and the physics of tone production where the bow meets the string, are used to reveal the free and expressive tone that lies within every bowed string instrument.

Foundation for the Advancement of String Education (FASE, Inc.), company Debbie Lyle, presenter Created for group classes and first published in 1949, George Bornoff’s original “Finger Patterns” is the basis for many of the new string books being published today. Session 1 will introduce the process and the foundations of the pedagogy including: “Cycle Form,” “Creative Review,” “Patterns and Variation,” and multi-level teaching. Participants will be provided with printable exercises to take back to their classrooms, and are encouraged to bring their instruments!

J.W. Pepper & Son, Inc., company Scott McCormick, presenter Manage your organization in one place, in less time. Cut Time is a powerful tool that truly cuts the time it takes to manage your organization. And more time means more success! Put your whole heart into your work - not your whole day.

Tempo Press, company Dr. Michael Alexander, presenter The new book from the authors of the popular Expressive Techniques for Orchestra, Expressive Sight-Reading for Orchestra employs the latest pedagogical research to improve student’s sight-reading skills not only as individual musicians, but also as a complete ensemble. Join Baylor professor Michael Alexander as he shares this exciting new book.

Foundation for the Advancement of String Education (FASE, Inc.), company Debbie Lyle, presenter Session 2 of the “Bornoff Approach” will explore the process and the foundations of the pedagogy as applied to advanced beginner and intermediate levels. Bornoff’s book, “Patterns in Position” will be introduced as we look at solidifying of intonation, tone productions, and introducing shifting. The session is geared towards the advancing middle school groups and particularly helpful for multi-level teaching in a high school setting. Participants will be provided with printable exercises to take back to their classrooms, and are encouraged to bring their instruments!
