Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (June 17, 2017)

Today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion will feature two stratospheric performances—one on trumpet and one of clarinet. By stratospheric, I mean you will hear very high notes played on both instruments. Both stratospheric notes occur at ends of two compositions you’ll hear on today’s show. One is “My Way” and the other is “Concerto for Clarinet.”

Coming up on July 3, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. in Big Spring Park, the Olde Towne Brass will be in concert, part of Concerts in the Park.
