LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 21, 2014) — University of Kentucky Associate Director of Bands and Associate Professor of Music George R. Boulden has been honored as the 2014 Outstanding Bandmaster by the Psi Chapter of Phi Betu Mu, an international bandmasters fraternity.

 

The distinction was announced during the 56th annual Kentucky Music Educators Association (KMEA) Professional Development Conference, held Feb. 5-8, in Louisville, Ky. The award presentation was made during the All-State Band performances, held at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts during the conference.

 

"I am honored and humbled to receive this honor," Boulden said. "Phi Beta Mu members serve as outstanding models of music education in Kentucky, as well as internationally."

 

In his role as associate director of bands at UK School of Music in the UK College of Fine Arts, Boulden conducts the UK Symphony Band, supervises student teachers, and teaches a music technology course. He received his bachelor's of music degree in music education from UK and master's degree in music education from the University of South Carolina.

 

Before coming to UK, Boulden served as a high school band director in South Carolina and Florida, and was the recipient of the American School Band Directors Association-Stanbury Award as the outstanding young band director in Florida and the Southeastern region of the United States. In 2011, Boulden was selected as the KMEA College/University Teacher of the Year.

 

Outside of his work at UK, Boulden maintains an active schedule having appeared as a guest conductor, clinician, and adjudicator throughout the U.S., Canada, and Japan. He has presented lectures and clinics at the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic, Music Educators National Conference National Convention, National Band Association National Conventions, College Band Directors National Association National Conventions, Music for All/Bands of America Summer Symposia, Drum Corps Japan, and several MENC State Association Conferences. Currently, Boulden serves as the editor of the Bluegrass Music News, the official journal of KMEA.
