I wanted to post a special alert to younger musicians about a special opportunity. The Milwaukee Festival Brass will again open its Apprentice Program to qualified high school musicians. This is unique because of the wonderful training and mentoring each student receives from the talented adult musicians in the group.
The Milwaukee Festival Brass is unique in the Milwaukee area in that they are a British Style Brass Band using British instrumentation. So, for example, there are no trumpets in the group, but there are different types of Cornets. You won't find a French Horn in the MFB, but there are Alto Horns.
The best way to learn more about the Apprentice Program is to check the MFB web site.
And Good Luck to all who audition!
