H. Robert Reynolds Conducts Frank Ticheli


Masters Music DVD Series_x000D_
With Blue Shades, Frank Ticheli realized his strong need to compose a work that would combine his love of early jazz with his own musical style. Frank Ticheli joined the USC composition faculty in 1991. His music has been described as "brilliantly effective, deeply felt, with impressive flair and striking instrumental colors..." The Philadelphia Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony, Detroit Symphony and the Dallas Symphony have performed Ticheli's works. He received his doctoral and masters degrees in composition from the University of Michigan. H. Robert Reynolds is the principal conductor of the USC Thornton Wind Ensemble. For 26 years he served as Director of Bands at the University of Michigan, and conductor of the Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings. For further information about Blue Shades, please visit or
