    Mark Bailey, conductor of the Lee University Symphonic Band, is Professor of Music at Lee University and holds the doctorate in Music Education from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati. Bailey is presently in his 21st year as conductor of Symphonic Band. Bailey combines his advanced training with the nation’s best wind conductors (Eugene Corporon, North Texas University, Myron Welch, University of Iowa, and Terrance Milligan, The University of Cincinnati) with his knowledge of how to utilize music for worship and praise to develop a unique combination of outstanding wind literature with arrangements that truly point the listener to Christ. Bailey’s expertise in this area is evidenced by his election as president of the Christian Instrumentalists and Directors Association in 2002. He served as the director of the Lee University Campus Choir during the 2007-2008 school year, while still conducting the Symphonic Band, after the untimely death of Dr. David Horton, who had successfully directed that ensemble for 25 years. Bailey teaches graduate courses, instrumental music education methods classes, applied conducting, church music, and music theory. He is also the former part time worship arts pastor at Mt. Olive Ministries in Cleveland, Tenn., where he supervised a 50-voice choir, 20-piece church orchestra, and worship leaders and musicians. Bailey is presently in this 23rd year of teaching at Lee University.
