Concert Preview: Milwaukee Festival Brass

Join the Milwaukee Festival Brass on Sunday October 23 at Schwan Concert Hall on the campus of Wisconsin Lutheran College for their concert entitled Ghosts and Goblins. Under the baton of Dr. Martin Rowden, the MFB will present original compositions and arrangements related to the Halloween Season.

The MFB will perform two British Marches: The Black Knight by William Rimmer, and Mephistopheles by Shipley Douglas. The MFB will feature the Euphonium in a piece entitled Midnight Euphonium, and the tuba in Marley's Ghost. Also on the program is Music of the Night from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera.

The MFB has been performing for many years at a high level of musicianship and entertainment. The new Director's choice in programming seems to keep that level high in both categories. Mark you calendar for an afternoon of music to welcome the first new co-director of the Milwaukee Festival Brass.
