Rhythm & Brass is being brought to campus by a grant from the Robert G. Boehmler Community Foundation. Boehmler, who received a bachelor's degree from the School of Music in 1938 and a master's degree in 1961, was a musician and educator who established this foundation to support education in the communities in which he lived. A music teacher in the Palmyra-Macedon (New York) School District for many years, Boehlmer died in 1998.
Rhythm & Brass's October 26 performance will be a home-turf concert for the group's French horn and piano player Alex Shuhan, an assistant professor of music performance in the Ithaca College School of Music. The ensemble is a brass quintet augmented by a percussionist. The other members of the ensemble are trumpeters Wiff Rudd and Rex Richardson, trombonist Tom Brantley, tuba player Matthew Gaunt, and drummer and percussionist David Gluck.
