Six Black Hills State University students will have the honor of representing BHSU in the 2007 South Dakota Intercollegiate Band.

Amanda Scott, senior music major from Custer; Chris Roman, sophomore instrumental music major from Rapid City; Stacey Meyer, senior biology major from Sioux Falls; Kim Ulmen, freshman instrumental music major from Kadoka; Sherri Gueswel, freshman English major from Jay Em, Wyo.; and Devon Strain, senior vocal music major from Westminster, Colo., will leave Wednesday, March 21 for their performance in Pierre.

The intercollegiate band gives students a chance to work with nationally and internationally known conductors. The group rehearses for a day and will perform for the South Dakota All State Band members Friday, March 23, which is also performing in Pierre that weekend.

The S.D. Intercollegiate Band will perform the premiere of a piece written by Mark Camphouse, the All State Band guest conductor. Camphouse has served as a guest conductor, lecturer, and clinician in 40 states, Canada and Europe and is professor of music and director of bands at Radford University in Virginia. Camphouse began composing at an early age, with the Colorado Philharmonic premiering his First Symphony at age 17.
