musdirAnthony Reimer has been the conductor of Foothills Concert Band since March 1999. He has a Masters in Wind Conducting from the University of Calgary as well as BMus and BEd degrees. In 2011, he was awarded with Life Membership in the World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles (WASBE) for his volunteer service work, including work as their web site publisher and newsletter publisher. He currently works as the Head Technician for the Integrated Arts Media Labs at the University of Calgary. Prior to that, he worked as a secondary school teacher in Southern Alberta and as a band music specialist in the the music industry.

During Anthony’s tenure with Foothills Concert Band, the band has been known for the breadth of musical repertoire that it performs. The band was featured in his final Masters recital, only the third community band ever to take part in such a recital at the University of Calgary. Anthony sees his musical future (and present) in the community band scene, and is extremely pleased to be a part of the tradition that is Foothills Concert Band.
