The award will also include a scholarship toward the senior’s future education.

james r. waechter band award

James R. Waechter came to the Ladue School District in 1987 and served as Director of Bands for the high school and middle school until his retirement in 2011. During his tenure he also directed the musical orchestra, was department chair for the Fine and Performing Arts Department, and was the district music facilitator. His dedication and leadership built the band program into one of the premier programs in the state.  In honor of his years of dedicated service, the Senior Class of 2011 began this award to recognize his leadership and tenure with the Ladue School District. This award, named in his honor, is presented to the senior or seniors who have actively participated in the band program and should be striving for excellence in themselves and others.  The students should take advantage of extra-curricular musical opportunities, encourage others to do their best, and demonstrate qualities that are similar to those of James R. Waechter. The award will also include a scholarship toward the senior’s future education.

He subsequently moved to Kirkwood High School and served as Director of Bands and Music Coordinator from 1985 until his retirement in June 2001. In honor of his years as a music educator, former students from Ladue wanted a way of saluting and thanking him for his dedication to music education. Through the creation of an endowment fund, a scholarship of $200.00 has been established to be applied toward summer study at a music camp or seminar of the student’s choice. This scholarship will go to an individual who is a current band student in grade 9, 10, or 11 and is based on merit and need.

Daniel K. Bruns (1981-2003) was a member of the Ladue Band program until his graduation in 2000. As a tuba player he was awarded the George M. Turmail Band Award and selected to the Missouri All-State Band, St. Louis Suburban District Honor Band, and the St. Louis Youth Symphony Orchestra. He studied privately with notable tuba players such as Jim Martin, Rex Martin, Gene Pokorny, Mike Sanders, and Alex Seratowski. Dan was a student with a love and passion for music. He was able to touch many people’s lives through this passion. Dan demonstrated that people from different backgrounds can come together in their appreciation of music. His perseverance and creative spirit allowed him to develop into an accomplished musician. In memory and recognition of Dan’s contribution to the Ladue Band program a scholarship fund has been established in his name. The student who receives this scholarship should be striving for success, passionate about music, and a respectful of the individuality of his/her peers.

Betsy Kaplan Cytron Summer Band Camp Scholarship

Betsy attended the Ladue School District beginning in 5th grade, when her family moved to Creve Coeur. Her high school band director, Tom Poshak, encouraged Betsy’s studies in music, which led to her graduation from the University of Illinois with a masters in music education. In 11th grade, Betsy attended a summer band camp where she forged memories and friendships. Betsy continues to attend summer band camp in Colorado, where some 80 adults assemble each summer to study and perform concert band music. Students who attend band camps return to our program with a stronger love and appreciation of the study and performance of band repertoire. Their studies with the experts of our profession combined with the fun of meeting other students who are similarly excited about band make for lasting memories and friendships. In honor of Betsy Kaplan Cytron’s service and retirement, her family and parents established the Betsy Kaplan Cytron Summer Band Scholarship fund for students completing their first or second year of band studies in the Ladue School District. Two students are chosen each year by the band faculty based on need and merit. The scholarship will fund attendance at the Illinois Summer Youth Music program at the University of Illinois, or at a similar summer band camp program deemed suitable by the band faculty.
