Bob Streckfuss grew up in Teaneck, NJ, and played in the NJ All-State Bands and
Orchestras. He received his BM and MM degrees from the University of Michigan,
where he played principal euphonium in the Michigan bands under the legendary
Dr. William D. Revelli.
In 1966 he moved to Delaware to direct the band and
orchestra at A.I. duPont HS. He started teaching at the University of Delaware in
1975, and 2 years later he was chosen to be conductor of The Wind Symphony.
During this time he was playing principal trombone in the Delaware Symphony
Orchestra and commuting to Catholic University in Washington, DC, to earn his
Doctor of Musical Arts degree.
Bob is married to his best friend, Jill Hannagan, an
early childhood music teacher and co-author of Making Music at the Keyboard,
published by Musikgarten.
He retired in 2011 after 45 years of teaching—36 of
which were at the University of Delaware. When he is not planning wind symphony
concerts, he is usually planning bicycle trips in far-off locations, sailing the
Chesapeake aboard Wind Symphony, an old 28’ sloop, or visiting his 8 grandchildren
in CT and CA.
