Georgetown College Tiger Band members Evan Carter Moore and Jacob Christopher Roberts have been selected to represent the school in the prestigious 2018 Kentucky Intercollegiate Band (KIB) in February. KIB is made up of 105 of the finest college and university band members from across the Commonwealth. KIB comes together during the annual Kentucky Music Educators conference.

Moore, a percussionist, is a product of Western Hills High School. He is the son of J.D. and Debbie Moore of Lexington. Moore is a philosophy major with minors in Classics and English. He is in Georgetown’s Oxford Honors Program, is a member of the Special Programs & Camps team, is the current president of the College’s President’s House Association (PHA), and is a former Editor-in-Chief of the school newspaper, The Georgetonian.

Roberts, who plays alto saxophone, graduated from Lexington Catholic High School. The son of Phil and Jean Roberts of Lexington, he is a biochemistry major at Georgetown College. He is in GC’s Science Honors Program and is a member of both the soccer and archery teams.

The KIB will perform at the statewide Kentucky Music Educators Association Conference Feb. 7-8 in Louisville. The clinician and conductor will be the nationally-acclaimed maestro, Dr. Emily Threinen, director of bands at the University of Minnesota. The ensemble will rehearse at the University of Louisville; the performance will be in Whitney Hall of the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts.

“Congratulations to these outstanding Band Scholars,” said Dr. Pete LaRue, Professor of Music and Director of Bands. “They shall well-represent our Tiger Bands and Georgetown College.”

Tiger Band members, aka Band Scholars, represent a cross-section of academic interests. Their commonality is their interest in music and music performance. They participate in both the Tiger Grrr…Pep Band and Symphonic Band.
