Information about the performers:


Baylor Brass brings a wealth of experience to its performances and educational clinics.  Comprised of the Baylor University brass faculty, the group concertizes regularly on the Baylor campus, in the public schools throughout Texas, and on tours of the major music schools outside Texas and to foreign countries.  Baylor Brass members have impressive credentials as chamber music performers, clinicians, and instrumental coaches.  This directly benefits the students at Baylor through chamber music classes and activities of the individual brass studios that are overseen and coached personally by members of Baylor Brass.  They believe that the playing abilities, collaborative skills, and musical awareness developed in rehearsing and performing chamber music equips Baylor’s students to be more effective in large ensembles and as professional performers or educators.

Operation Achievement - Recruiting Mentors

OA - Volunteer Opportunity 

Operation Achievement (OA) is a mentoring program that works with the three middle schools in Georgetown ISD. OA is a fun combination of mentoring, community engaged learning and exciting enrichment activities.  As a volunteer mentor with OA, you would commit to mentoring a middle school student on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from 4 - 6 p.m.  The students are transported to our campus, so all you have to do is show up to the Olin Building, room 305.   There are always snacks, and it is a great way to meet some amazing people, while making a substantial impact on the life of a middle schooler.   If you are interested in joining us, stop by our concourse table at lunch to pick up some additional information.  Our New Mentor training is on Thursday, September 8 at Olin, room 110. The first sessions of OA are Tuesday, September 15 - Thursday, September 17 at 4:00 p.m. Please contact Jeanette Montalvo at for more information.
