Overall employment of musicians is expected to increase over the next several years, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports. Those who wish to launch careers in this field may benefit from enrolling in the College of Mount St. Joseph in Ohio, as eight of the school's students were selected for the Ohio Private College Instrumental Conductors Association (OPCICA) Honors Bands.
The learners were nominated by their directors and chosen by the president and president-elect of the organization. All students who were nominated are members of the college's Symphonic Band, Lion's Roar Band or Jazz Ensemble.
The chosen musicians included Lisa Gerold on clarinet, Kenneth Glassmeyer on flute, Kirsten Grimsley on flute, Megan Hatton on clarinet, Sarah Herdman on trumpet, Travis Pearce on tenor saxophone, Laura Sucher on French horn, and Cody Williams on euphonium.
OPCICA, which was founded in 1987, is made up of more than 20 private colleges and universities in the state, according to its website. The organization's purpose is to create a network of resource sharing among the musical departments of various privately funded universities.
