Brass Band Northwest concludes our season at BelPres with an exuberant explosion of music! This program features exciting music from many genres ranging from the art music style of Celebration by Donald Coakley through the vibrant score of Four Minute Mile by Judith Bingham to the slapstick fun of the Blues Brother Medley.
Brass Band Northwest endeavors to provide opportunities for talented young musicians and are proud to feature Jonathan Holder, cornet and Eric Thurston, bass trombone, on this concert. Jonathan is a high school student from Olympia and is the first winner of Stand in Front of the Band! He attended the Northwest Music Festival in 2018 and was so taken with the sound of brass bands that he commuted from Olympia to perform with us last spring. Eric is a current member of Brass Band Northwest and we wish him well in college next year. (We hope that his parents can afford the airfare for Eric’s flights to weekly Tuesday night rehearsals next year.)
