Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (October 7, 2017)

Wind-band music, just as much as today’s popular music, has one-hit wonders. Today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion opens with a one-hit wonder from Detroit: Walter Halson Boorn, who lived from 1906 to 1959. His one-hit wonder is the “Queen City March,” probably written to honor Cincinnati, Ohio, the home of his music publishers. On today’s edition, you’ll also hear a percussion arrangement of Pachelbel’s Canon performed by the All Star Percussion Ensemble.
