Brass of Peace performed at New York’s famed Carnegie Hall on Monday, February 12, 2018 at 8 p.m. thanks to an invitation from Baldwin Wallace Conservatory Wind Ensemble. The program featured a world premiere Concerto for Brass Trio by Clint Needham and featuring Baldwin Wallace’s brass trio in residence, The Factory Seconds. Brass of Peace performed several works on its own; Bach: Fantasie, Debussy: Girl With the Flaxen Hair and a fanfare by Pierre Max DuBois. Joint works with the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory Wind Ensemble included the colorful Millennium Canons (2001) by Kevin Puts and Wagner’s poignant, Elsa’s Procession from Lohengrin. 

I'll be posting "Countdown to Carnegie" postings, rehearsal clips and player profiles on our Facebook page so that you can all go along on the road with us to Carnegie. If you are in the New York area on February 12, please come out and support us. The tickets are only $10.
