David Walker Honored for 20 Years of Service to MSAD 11 Music Program

On Monday night, 12/8, the Gardiner Area Music Boosters presented Mr. Walker with a special honor in recognition of his 20 years in the Music program at MSAD 11. The Music Boosters commissioned a well-known Maine composer, Terry White, to compose a new piece of band music for the GAHS Band, in Mr. Walker's honor. At the Winter Concert the Music Boosters and students surprised him with it. (Boy, was he surprised!) Many music alumni, current and former Boosters, and special guests were there. It was a great night and a well-deserved honor.

The Boosters learned that night that the piece has been picked up by a publishing house, which just speaks to the quality. Starting next year band directors around the country will be able to purchase the music, which will always read across the top that it was commissioned for the Gardiner Area High School band in honor of Director David Walker.

The piece is titled "Festive Fanfare," and Mr. Walker has already began working with the band on it. They plan to play the “worldwide debut” of this new piece at the Spring Concert.

Below are pictures of David Walker and composer, Terry White, during the special moment.
