“Twenty Questions for Joe Anguilo and Bob Greenwood”
Mill Valley’s Music Men – June 1, 7 PM
20 questions with Mill Valley’s Music Men:
In their long successful careers as music teachers, Bob Greenwood and Joe Angiulo witnessed vast cultural and economic changes, but always the orchestra and band played on. Viewed from the perspective of nearly 80 years of collective experience, Bob and Joe take us on a journey of time and change encapsulated in the beat of a small town brimming with big talent.
Join us for a rare opportunity to see inside the teacher’s perspective as Bob Greenwood and Joe Angiulo share with us the privileges and challenges of their long careers:
In his capacity as music teacher and orchestra and marching band conductor, Bob Greenwood served Tamalpais High School from 1951-1988. His career as a professional musician spanned 28 years. Bob has served on the Boards of several musical organizations and written numerous articles and columns for professional journals in music education. Bob has received many awards and recognitions and is the second recipient to be given a Millie award, in 1990.
Joe Angiulo taught instrumental music, primarily strings, in the Mill Valley School District from 1966-2002. As a Board member of the Mill Valley Chamber Music Society, Joe is responsible for bringing professional classical musicians into local schools. He serves the Marin Music Chest Board, which provides music scholarships to talented young musicians. He received the Marin County Golden Bell Award in 1990 and again in 2002. In 1990 the city of Mill Valley commended him for 25 years of service. Joe’s most treasured award is his Millie, given to him in 1997.
