BC Wind Ensemble To Perform With BRSB Thursday


April 22, 2019

The Brevard College Wind Ensemble presents its last concert of the season on Thursday evening, April 25, at 7:30 p.m. The concert will also feature special guests the Blue Ridge Symphonic Brass (BRSB).

The BRSB is a 28-piece brass ensemble with outstanding players from the Brevard, Hendersonville, Asheville and Greenville areas. This unique blend of professional and amateur musicians will offer a wide variety of musical selections.

The concert is free and open to the public.

The concert program will open with Tyler Grant’s award-winning “Panoramic Landscapes,” followed by a wonderful concert band adaptation of excerpts from George Gershwin’s Prelude Suite featuring Brevard College senior music major Daniel Etheridge as piano soloist.

The Brevard College Wind Ensemble and Blue Ridge Symphonic Brass will combine to perform Samuel Barber’s “Sure on this Shining Night,” and Stephen Reineke’s “The Witch and the Saint.”

Maestro Jamie Hafner will lead the BRSB in an impressive array of selections for brass, percussion and organ, including Giovanni Gabrieli’s “Canzoni Quarti Toni,” which will feature three brass choirs playing from the balcony and the Porter Center’s 3539 pipe Kirkpatrick-Coleman organ. Additional selections include Karg-Elert’s “Praise the Lord with Drums and Cymbals,” featuring Brevard College music faculty member Vance Reese as organ soloist, Chris Hazell’s “Kraken” from “Three Brass Cats” and the “Vienna Philharmonic Fanfare” by Richard Strauss.
