Brass Ensemble Concert: Fine Arts Center Salter Concert Hall, 7:30PM
The Wabash College Brass Ensemble will present a spring concert at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 11, in Salter Concert Hall in the Fine Arts Center. The Wabash College Brass Ensemble will present a concert that travels through Europe and references different people and places through the century straddling 1600. From the cathedrals of Venice, to the court of Queen Elizabeth I, to the Town Hall in Leipzig, there is a rich tradition of Renaissance and Reformation era music for brass instruments serving church, monarch and town. The concert also opens with an exciting piece from Music for the Royal Fireworks by G. F. Handel, and culminates with English and U. S. American folk songs. Under the direction of Professor Peter Hulen, the Brass Ensemble has performed a wide variety of works from the Renaissance to the avant-garde, from 16th-century cathedrals and town halls, to the blues and the Beatles. Admission to the concert is free. The public is cordially invited.
