David Gorham has been director of bands at Owasso, Oklahoma High School since 1989. The Owasso bands enjoy a wonderful reputation as being one of the finest school band programs in the nation, receiving consistent superior ratings in every competition for may years while performing some of the finest and most difficult band literature available. In addition to performances throughout the state and region, the band has appeared in the Pasadena Tournament of Rose Parade on three different occasions. Gorham received his Bachelor of Science degree in Education from the University of Arkansas in 1982, and received his Master of Music Education degree from the same university in 1993. Prior to moving to Owasso he taught in the Van Buren (AR), Hartshorne (OK), and McAlester (OK) public schools. With over 30 band compositions published by Wingert-Jones Music, he has clearly established himself as one of the premier composers of music for school bands not only in the United States, but throughout the world. His music appears on almost every state list in the U.S., and is also included on lists in Australia and in Japan. He is the recipient of many commissions, including music for the University of Arkansas Symphonic Band, the Van Buren H.S. Band, the Richomnd (MO) H.S. Band, the North Hills (PA) H.S. Band, the Arkansas All State Band, the Pratt (KS) Community College Band, the Northeast Kansas Band Directors Association, the Valley (Des Moines, IA) School Band, and for the Northwood Junior High School Bands.
