January 25, 2013

WVIA-FM presents OTiS and The Clickard Consortium on the next live broadcast of Homegrown Music Concert on Monday, Feb. 18 at 8 p.m. in the Sordoni High-Definition Theater located in the WVIA Studios in Pittston, PA.

Drenched in soul, nestled deep in a groove, OTiS is the product of time and experience. The band strings together sounds that have deeply influenced their lives to create music inspired by everything from soul to funk and back again. Singer Craig Alan had a dream to unite like-minded, passionate musicians, and his dreams are most certainly coming true.

The Clickard Consortium is directed by Dr. Stephen D. Clickard and recently released its first CD, titled “Remembrance.” Dr. Clickard is a professor of music at Bloomsburg University and also directs the BU Jazz Ensemble, Wind Ensemble and Concert Band. He teaches courses in undergraduate conducting, jazz history, jazz improvisation, music education, and the brass studio. Dr. Clickard is past-president of the International Association for Jazz Education’s Pennsylvania Unit, and of the California Music Educator’s Association – Central Coast Section.
