Williams Brass Ensemble – Brass Bash 2010
Tom Bergeron, director
Early brass works by Purcell, Palestrina and Melchoir Franck share the program with Hovhaness and world premiere works by Williams students Jacob Walls, Laone Thekiso, Dan Kohane and Rob Silversmith. For this concert the Brass Ensemble finds itself in a quintet format, with trumpeters Jacob Walls and Noah Wentzel; hornists Elizabeth Irvin and Christina Knapp along with Andrea Currie, trombone. The director, Tom Bergeron, adds his trumpet to this choir of brass whenever a sixth voice is needed.
