logo_wasbe MA in Music student Luis Viquez will be published in the 2013 issue of the World Association of  Symphonic Bands and Wind Ensembles Journal (Volume 20). This past summer, Viquez performed  a clarinet concerto as a guest soloist of the Symphony Orchestra of Heredia, one of the leading  symphonic ensembles in Latin America. His article titled "The Clarinet Concerto by Costa Rican  Composer Benjamin Gutierrez" reflects the research he conducted under the guidance of Dr. Jesse  Krebs, investigating the historic context and stylistic influences on the composition.

Viquez stated, "It is a very big honor for me since some of the other collaborators of the journals are important band conductors and scholars in the medium." 

The WASBE Journal began in 1994. It contains articles on performance practices, repertoire, conducting, wind instrument and band pedagogy, band history and sociology, and composition analysis.
