Gay Games Team Band Artistic Directors
LGBA and Team Band are thrilled to announce the selection of Lee Hartman and Pete Nowlen as Artistic Directors for Team Band at the Paris 2018 Gay Games. Lee will be leading the band for the gala concert at Casino de Paris, and Pete will be leading the outdoor concert at Hotel de Ville in the middle of the Athlete Village.
Lee has been the Artistic Director of the Mid America Freedom Band in Kansas City since 2012 and is also the Artistic Director for the 2018 LGBA Conference in May of that year. He teaches full time at the University of Central Missouri and is the recipient of an 2016–17 Excellence in Teaching Award from the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.
Pete has led the San Francisco Lesbian Gay Freedom Band starting in the fall of 2013, serves as Director of Concert Bands at UC Davis, and has played French horn professionally for decades in symphonies around the world.
Team Band looks forward to working with them over the next several months as we lead up to meeting all of Team Band and the rest of the world in Paris. Check out www.lgba.org/teamband for more information, and email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
