Director of Bands John P. Lynch recently guest-conducted the Concert Band of the United States Army Field Band at a concert in Maryland. From the Field Band:

The Concert Band of the United States Army Field Band had a different sound during Friday’s performance at River Hill High School in Maryland. The band performed a challenging program of 20th century American Music, featuring the music of Aaron Copland, John Mackey, and more. But the reason for the unique sound was not due to the difficulty. Instead, it had everything to do with the guest conductor. Dr. John Lynch, Director of Bands and Professor of Music at the University of Georgia, was scheduled to work with the Concert Band for four days before the concert. When he arrived, however, he was asked to prepare the Concert Band in just three days.
