Dear Alumni Band,
Dr. Scott Hanna, LHB director, is out of town on vacation. Below is a copy of the letter he sent to the LHB members with all the new staff updates. We look forward to working with all the new faculty and staff for Band Day and supporting LHB.
LHAB President 2015
Dear Longhorn Band members,

Hello from Austin!  I hope that your summer is going well.  Below is some news regarding LHB that I want to share with you.  Lots of great things happening, so read on!

NEW FACULTY AND STAFF – We have a number of new faces on our team!
Mr. Joshua Gall, Assistant to the Director of Bands; Assistant Director of the Longhorn Band; Director of the Pep Band
Mr. Gall joins us from the University of Florida, where he is pursuing the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Instrumental Conducting and Music Education.  A native of Virginia, he holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Virginia Commonwealth University, and Master’s Degree in Instrumental Conducting from the University of Florida.  Professor Gall has extensive experience with athletic bands, and brings a wide variety of professional experiences to our program. (And yes, he is the brother of current teaching assistant Luke Gall!)

Ms. Alexandra Gotliboski, Administrative Associate
Ms. Gotliboski joins us in the University Bands office, and comes to us from the Memorial Hermann Healthcare System in Houston.  She is a graduate of the Moody College of Communication, and comes from a family of proud Longhorns!  She has jumped into her work with both feet, and has made an immediate positive impact on our program. We are very happy to have her join our team!

Ms. Delia Tovar Botbol, Administrative Associate
While Ms. Botbol is no stranger to LHB, we are overjoyed to announce that she has now joined our team as a full-time employee of the Butler School of Music!  In addition to all of her wonderful work with our Silks and Big Flags, she will work on the administration of our summer music camps and of all of the University Bands program.

SHOWS FOR FALL 2015 – We are very happy to announce some of the shows that will be performed by the 2015-2016 Edition of the Showband of the Southwest!  In addition to all of our traditional shows, we have some great new performances in store for the Longhorn faithful!
  • LHBack to the Future – a tribute to the Back to the Future movie franchise on the 30th anniversary of its first release
  • The Best of Austin – a tribute to the Live Music Capital of the World, featuring music of Austin-based performers
  • Space! – 2001 A Space Odyssey/Star Trek/Star Wars
There will be some other show news in the coming weeks – please stay tuned!

I wish all of you the very best.  Hook ‘Em Horns!
