In December, the Jerusalem Music Centre held a training workshop for Israeli band conductors from across Israel.
The goal was to help improve the musical experience and strengthen the rapport that is necessary between
conductors and band members for a cohesive performance.
Dr. Joseph Missal, a world-renowned band conductor from Oklahoma State University, was chosen to lead this
workshop. Dr. Missal is a world-renowned band conductor. At OSU he conducts the Wind Ensemble, Symphonic
Band, and Chamber Winds and guides all aspects of the OSU Band Program. He also directs the graduate
conducting program, and serves as Chairman of the Wind and Percussion Division. His ensembles have performed
all over the world, and he has been in Israel before and has a very good reputation here.
OKIE was excited to be a partner with the Jerusalem Music Centre, offering this opportunity to the more than 70
youth bands from across Israel.
