Walter Hall

Four Muskingum University student-musicians have been named to the 2010 Ohio Private College Instrumental Conductors Association (OPCICA) Honors Bands. The students were selected during OPCICA’s annual festival competition, held in January at Mount Vernon Nazarene University in Mount Vernon, Ohio.

Named to the Jazz Ensemble were Terry Linger '12, alto saxophone; and Alex Earich '12, trumpet.

Named to the Concert Band were Kellie Hartmeyer '10, flute; and Zach Zemolong '11, alto saxophone.

Nominations for the concert band and the jazz ensemble were submitted by conductors from each OPCICA-member institution, and those nominations were evaluated by both the president and president-elect of the organization.

Founded in 1987, OPCICA is comprised of more than 20 member colleges and universities. The purpose of the organization is to develop a closer network of communication and resource sharing among the instrumental departments, divisions and conservations of the various privately funded institutions of higher education within the state of Ohio.
