Antonetti Named Outstanding Young Bandmaster for Arkansas

Posted by Alan on August 2, 2013 3:24 PM | (Not Filed) |

trey a.pngTrey Antonetti was named the 2013 Phi Beta Mu Outstanding Young Bandmaster of the Year for the state of Arkansas. Antonetti received the award at a luncheon today at the Arkansas Bandmaster Association's annual convention in Little Rock. Phi Beta Mu is an International Band Fraternity designed to honor outstanding band directors at the state level with only one chapter per state. This award is to honor an outstanding band director with less than seven years of experience.
 
Trey Antonetti is going into his fifth year of teaching and his third year as band and guard director with the Fayetteville Public Schools. During his time at Fayetteville, the guard program has grown from a 16 member color guard into a program that serves over 60 students in the fall and winter seasons, and will now receive P.E. credit for their participation.
    
In addition to the guard program, Trey has conducted the Fayetteville Concert band for the past two years, which has earned division one ratings on stage and in sight reading both years, and received straight ones this year with their hardest program to date. The same weekend as Region VII Concert Assessment, both the Fayetteville varsity winter guard and Trey's independent group, Avant Guard, were gold medalist division winners at circuit championships.
    
In his "free time" Trey also directs the University of Arkansas Razorback Color Guard, runs an Independent A Winter Guard and works with numerous programs around the state. Prior to Fayetteville, Trey taught at White Hall Jr. High and Kelly middle school in Springdale where he was named teacher of the year in 2011.  Trey recently obtained his ESL Certification and is working towards certification in Physical Education. He did his student internship at Cabot High School and is a 2009 graduate of the University of Central Arkansas where he was named Student Intern of the year by the music department.
