Brass Extravaganza

This past Monday (2/19), Tommey began the proceedings with a piece on the Univox, played through the Workshop's new guitar amp.

Boxcars Boxcars Boxcars (Dan Blacksberg - trombone, Adam Dotson - euphonium, and Joe Moffett-trumpet) performed a few improvisations in preparation for their performance at the JP Library on Thursday. Hooper Piccalero, a chamber ensemble with Danilo Henriquez and Lauren Strobel, trumpets, Matt Plummer, trombone, and Derek Beckvold, bari sax, performed some study pieces by Christian Wolff, in preparation for concerts at NEC on Wednesday and Sunday.

The second half featured Adam on piano in a duo with Joe, and a finale with all of the brass players together, which was surprisingly quiet, given the potential of the forces involved.
