Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (March 3, 2018)

The history of music is filled with lives ended too soon. That was certainly the case when two musicians of the group Circus Contraption were killed in Seattle in 2012 during the Cafe Racer Shooting. The Circus Contraption is a very different wind band—actually a circus band that is darkly humorous. Today's edition features performances from their album Gallimaufry (ga luh MAH free). Today’s show with is a duet for glockenspiel and theremin. A theremin is an electronic instrument played by moving the hands beside an vertical rod.
