Craig Kirchoff’s Retirement

A Letter from Jerry Luckhardt & Tim Diem Dear Band Alumni, We would like to share with the Band Alumni and friends of the University of Minnesota the news that our great friend and colleague, Craig Kirchhoff, has announced his retirement as Director of Bands at the conclusion of this school year. Craig’s teaching career began in the Milwaukee School System and has spanned over forty years, the last 21 of which have been at the University of Minnesota. To commemorate this benchmark in Craig’s career we are preparing a celebration concert on Sunday, April 26, 2015 at 2:00p.m. in Ted Mann Concert Hall. We hope you will hold this date and consider traveling back to campus to be part of this historic event in the life of the University Minnesota Band program.
