Meet the band and staff » Dr. Mike Fansler

Dr. Mike Fansler


Wind Ensemble Conductor/WIU Director of Bands
Hometown: Blackbird, Delaware

Trip goal: To provide an opportunity for WIU students to experience a vastly different culture and return to the United States with the ability to think more globally. In addition, collaborating with Brazilian musicians and performing for musically appreciative spectators will prove rewarding; music reaches beyond language and cultural barriers!


  1. As parents of Tim Horr we want to thank you and the staff at WIU making it possible for him to be able to go on this wonderful journey and experience a different culture in Brazil. I’m sure he will have alot to tell us when he returns. We are so much enjoying watching everything you are doing on the trip by looking everyday on the website.

    Thank you again,

    Carolyn Horr
