Ithaca Brass Spring Concert


Contributed by Erik Kibelsbeck

Lovers of brass music will have their spring opportunity to hear the Ithaca Brass in a free concert on Tuesday, March 15, at 7:00 pm in the Hockett Family Recital Hall.

Their program will include rarely heard gems from the brass repertoire by Passereau, Addison, Wilder, and Ewald.

The Ithaca Brass was established in 1966 as the resident brass quintet of the Ithaca College School of Music, making the quintet one of the very first groups of its kind. Since then the Ithaca Brass has performed programs throughout the United States at regional, state, and national conferences of educators and professional music organizations. Each of the members of the quintet, which is composed of the Ithaca College brass faculty, has significant credentials as a performer and teacher, and the group is conversant in virtually every musical language ranging from classical to jazz.

The members of the Ithaca Brass are Frank Campos, trumpet, Kim Dunnick, trumpet, Harold Reynolds, trombone, Alex Shuhan, French horn, and David Unland, tuba. They will be joined by pianist Graeme Bailey for this concert.
