Barry Trobaugh
Musical Director

Maestro Trobaugh first joined the Memphis Wind Symphony in 1985 and served as Principal Horn until moving to the podium initially in 2010, later becoming the full-time Musical

Director in 2014. Following directly in the footsteps of previous MWS Directors, Barry has evolved the performance-standard and concert frequency bringing the Memphis Wind

Symphony to greater popularity with both concert goers and musical performers. Children’s concerts, seasonal events, masterwork showcases, and special events now fill the annual calendar of this amazing musical ensemble.

Barry Trobaugh is recently retired as the Director of Bands at Munford High School in Munford Tennessee. In a career spanning 40 years, the last 27 years he served the many students and greater community of Munford Tennessee. His marching, concert, jazz, and indoor color guard

ensembles are nationally recognized for their quality and consistency of performance. His students have traveled and performed coast to coast including the 2015 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC and the 2019 Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena CA. During Mr.

Trobaugh’s tenure, the Munford community was selected three times as a National Association of Music Merchant’s “Best Community for Music Education.”

Past retirement, Trobaugh continues to assist students and educators alike through state and national associations as an highly active educational consultant, adjudicator and clinician, and has redefined his dedication to his musical passions through his love for the Memphis Wind




Dr. Albert Nguyen is the Director of Bands at the University of Memphis.  His responsibilities include overseeing all aspects of the university bands, conducting the Wind Ensemble, leading the graduate wind conducting program, and serving as the director of the Memphis Music Camp.  He also supervises student teachers and teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in conducting. Prior to this position, Dr. Nguyen served as the Assistant Director of Bands and the Director of Athletic Bands at the University of Memphis.  He began his professional teaching career in Arkansas as the Director of Bands at Morrilton High School and maintains his connection to the public schools by frequently serving as an adjudicator, clinician, and guest conductor.


Dr. Nguyen holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music Education from Arkansas Tech University and the Master of Music and Doctorate of Musical Arts in Wind Conducting from The University of Texas at Austin. He is a member of Kappa Kappa Psi, Tau Beta Sigma, College Band Directors National Association, and the National Association for Music Educators.
