Andrea Brown was named the Assistant Director of Michigan Marching and Athletic Bands Tuesday. Brown spent the past four years directing bands at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Director of Bands Michael Haithcock wrote in an e-mail to MMB students that he was proud to have Brown join the University community, citing her “conducting skills and the promise of her research agenda.”
“We think (she) will be an excellent fit with our students and our mission,” Haithcock wrote.
Assistant Director of Bands John Pasquale echoed Haithcock’s comments in an e-mail to the MMB community.
“I’ve known Prof. Brown for many years and have no doubt that she is the perfect person to embrace and uphold the storied tradition and strong legacy of the Michigan Bands,” Pasquale wrote.
This is a developing story.
