AUSTIN, TX (July 24, 2017) – Rhythmic Force is excited to have Bobby Lopez as our Front Ensemble Coordinator. Bobby’s background in percussion is extensive to say the least, and we are thrilled to have him joining our team! He will work closely with our Ensemble Director to craft the front ensemble performances for our 2018 production.
Bobby is currently a Senior Lecturer at Texas State University as well as an active educator, clinician, performer and adjudicator throughout the United States. He received a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and a Master of Music degree in Percussion Performance from Texas State University. Alumnus of the DCI High Percussion recipient, 1998 Santa Clara Vanguard, and the 1999 DCI World Champion Concord Blue Devils, he was awarded first prize for his composition "Two Days" in the 1998 DCI multi-percussion solo competition. He has worked with several percussion programs including Georgetown High School (TX), Cedar Park High School, Revolution Indoor drumline, and the Texas State University drumline.
“I have worked with Bobby for several years with my own programs, and his knowledge in percussion will be a huge asset to our season! He is not only a master teacher but a master performer, and I’m beyond excited to have him guiding the way for our front!” says our Ensemble Director, Jordan Garza.
