A Touch of Brass will perform at Northeast Community College

The five-member A Touch of Brass ensemble will perform in concert this coming weekend on the campus of Northeast Community College in Norfolk. The program will be Sunday, January 29, at 2 pm, at the Cox Activities Center Theater, 801 E. Benjamin Ave.

The concert, sponsored by the Northeast music department, will consist of a variety of styles. Selections include “Lewis & Clark Trail”, “Beale Street Blues”, “Ewald Quintet No. 3”, “Maurer’s Three Pieces”, “A Grainger Suite” and “Escape”. The “Lewis & Clark Trail” was written as a commemoration of westward exploration, while “Escape” is about a harrowing journey down a mountainside. The ensemble members said both selections are exciting new works that evoke vivid images in the mind.

A Touch of Brass is a quintet that plays on many occasions including weddings and special celebrations. Each year the group develops a new program and executes it for many of the communities its members represent.

Group members include David Bohnert, dean of arts and humanities at Wayne State College (WSC), on trumpet; Josh Calkin, bandleader and bass brass professor at WSC, on tuba; Kevin McLouth, director of instrumental studies at Northeast Community College, on trumpet; Randy Neuharth, retired director of instrumental studies at Northeast Community College, on trombone; and Gary Reeves, retired horn instructor at the University of South Dakota and Northern State College, who serves as an adjunct instructor at Morningside University, on the horn.

The concert is free and open to the public.
