A wide breadth of music and expression is available to brass instruments. The Brass Ensemble explores that range—from antiquity, where the terrifying sounds of brass instruments heralded war and communicated power, to the sound of medieval dance music, the melodic balance of classical music, and contemporary forms, including the jazz/funk street bands of New Orleans and the rhythmically twisted Roma bands of Eastern Europe. Performing in standard brass ensemble configurations from large to small and using original scores when applicable, or arrangements as necessary, the group performs on and off campus in recitals, church services, and college and community events.
The group is open to all interested brass players.
The Brass Ensemble is directed by David Wharton.
Rehearsals: Tuesday, 8:00-9:00 pm
