Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (December 8, 2018)

This year, Hannakuh goes from December 2 to December 10. To celebrate Hannakuh, this edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion features an arrangement of klezmer classics by Johan De Meij, a Dutch wind-band composer born in 1953 in Voorburg, the Netherlands. Voorburg is a suburb of the Hague, where De Meij graduated from the Royal Conservatory of the Hague. Before concentrating on composing and conducting, he was a professional trombone player, but also played the flute and the euphonium. But today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion begins with a fanfare by James Hosay, an American composer born in Nashville in 1959.
