Darrell Grosz, Conductor
Darrell Grosz earned both his Bachelor and Master of Music Education degrees from the University of Michigan. His 29 year teaching career started in Hale, Michigan, where he took over a defunct program and turned it around until it received 1st division ratings at both district and state levels. He then became the conductor for the Clara Bryant JHS bands and orchestra in Dearborn, for the 1975-76 school year. Next was a two year stint at Scranton Middle school in Brighton for the 1976-78 school years. Darrell then changed careers and for three years took a position as a road representative for the Herter Music Center in Bay City. In 1981 he returned to his initial teaching position in Hale and remained there until 1987 when a millage failure caused the instrumental music program to be cut. He moved to Gladwin to direct the Gladwin Bands for the 1987-89 years. Once again the program was eliminated due to a millage failure. During that layoff time, Darrell took half year positions at both the Indian Lakes Schools in Indian River and the Arenac Eastern Schools in Arenac. In 1990, after those half year stints, Darrell was recalled as the conductor of the Gladwin program. It was there that he rebuilt the program and achieved consistent 1st division bands until his retirement in 1999. After his retirement, Darrell took two longer term substitute assignments in both Hale and Clare to help the programs continue while their directors where on leave.
Darrell has been the conductor for the District IX All Star Band, and has also been a guest conductor of the Midland Concert Band. He has been asked to critique various bands for festival participation, and also acted as a clinician for school bands. Since his retirement from teaching, Darrell has played trumpet in the Midland Concert Band, the Gateway Community Band, the Bay Concert Band, and the Northern Michigan Brass Band.
