A reminder and an audition notice for students

Be sure to attend the Knightwind Ensemble concert today, March 21, at 3 PM in the Schwan Concert Hall of Wisconsin Lutheran College. If you'd like a discount on the adult priced tickets in your group, see the website:, and click on the Next Concert link. If you print the page, you'll get $1 off the adult priced tickets for everyone in your party.

And say hello. I'll be selling the tickets!

Also, the Milwaukee Festival Youth Brass will be holding auditions on April 23 and 24. The Youth Brass, also directed by MFB Maestra Patricia Backhaus, welcomes brass and percussion student musicians from age 10 through 17. For the audition, students will be asked to perform a three to five minute solo or etude, scales, double and triple tonging and sight reading. Percussionists will be asked to play drum set, tympani, and mallet instruments.

Rarely can a student in that age range participate in a British style Brass Band; truly a unique experience.

And you can see the Milwaukee Festival Youth Brass perform on Tuesday evening March 30th at 7 PM, at the Lincoln Center of the Arts, 820 E. Knapp St. If you'd like more information regarding the auditions, please contact Maestra Backhaus at Or see the web site for more information:
