Brass Ensemble Performs Concert in Milford
Posted: February 25, 2014
The DSU Brass Ensemble converted musical notes into tuition
support as it performed a Feb. 23 concert at the Reformation
Lutheran Church of Milford.
Calling themselves the Scholarship Brass Quintet, the musicians
did a ten-selection Sunday afternoon concert in the sanctuary of
the church in front of an appreciative gathering of music lovers.
The music performance included classical compositions from J.S.
Bach, Samuel Scheidt and Gustav Holst, jazz numbers from Fats
Waller and Lew Pollack, and other selections as well.
The quintet performed the concert underneath the glow of sunlight
that streamed upon them from the sanctuarys tall stained
glass windows; and their brass notes resonated brilliantly in the
wonderful acoustics of the church.
The concert represented a homecoming for ensemble trombonist
Devon Schlegel, who grew up in Milford. The senior student served
as the concert emcee and was joined by ensemble members Neil
Davis on trumpet, BriYahn Ritchie on trumpet, Hakeem Nabi
on French horn and Denzel A. Thompson-Williams on tuba.
Patrick Hoffman is the ensembles advisor.
