Welcome to wilsonmarimba.com! On this website you can learn more about the different types of performance and educational opportunities that I can offer. You can also use this website to follow my gigs and watch videos of performances.
I have been accepted as a Doctoral candidate at the University of Northern Colorado! I will entering this fall, 2013, and will be a Graduate Teaching Assistant to Prof. Gray Barrier. You can check out my Bio and CV for more details.
In other news, my wife Jacqueline Wilson will be joining the faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville as Assistant Professor of Bassoon and Theory this fall.
This month brought an end to the Wilson Duo's inaugural season of performances... or so we thought! Starting in the summer of 2012, we performed twice at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, at UW-Stout, on Wisconsin Public Radio's Sunday Afternoon from the Chazen, and most recently in Ashland, WI for the Ashland Chamber Music Society. Now, we have just received word that our proposal to perform at the International Double Society 2013 Convention has been accepted! We will be performing three standard compositions for the instrumentation. More information will be posted as soon as it is updated on the conference website.
This month I return to performing with the Eau Claire Chamber Orchestra! In addition to performing in the 11/17 concert, I will be presenting some music during the concert's intermission. This will include some short solo marimba pieces, and two George Hamilton Green xylophone rags. During the rags I will be accompanied by students of mine from Chippewa Falls High School.
Many thanks go out to the programs and Universities where I had an opportunity to perform this month! Thank you to Chris Ward at Waldorf College, Aaron Durst at UW-Stout, and Lori Skelton at Wisconsin Public Radio. At some point soon the recordings of my solo recital at Waldorf and the Wilson Duo concert on Sunday Afternoon-Live From the Chazen will be available, and posted on this website.
Also, my first semester with UWEC's Continuing Education Department was a huge success, and I look forward to teaching more community classes in the future.
