Tyler Stone

Dr. Matt Mailman shares: “I can well remember being at TMEA several years ago talking to Jason Smith, who was promoting this fantastic tuba player in his band and encouraging us at OCU to take a good look at this Tyler Stone from Paris, Texas. I am very glad we did! Over your time at OCU, you became one of the most successful students to have ever come through our undergraduate and graduate programs. I will always remember the outstanding work you did for the Nelson concert and for The Music Man where you revealed not only your work ethic but also your heart. Best wishes for a certain career of meaningful success, and stay in touch!”

Dr. Melissa Plamann shares: “Tyler, you have grown immeasurably in the past 6 years. I am honored to call you a friend and a colleague, and I am so very proud of your achievements. Thank you for giving so freely of yourself, particularly with Chapel Choir and in your organ playing for chapel services. I'm terribly sorry that we were unable to collaborate in the OCU chapel for your final conducting recital, but I look forward to the day when we are able again to make music together. I wish you all the very best, and I cannot wait to see where your many and varied skills lead you!”
