Army Band Instructs Students
“Top Brass” instructs SU students and performs for a packed crowd.
“Top Brass,” a six member brass ensemble from The United States Army Band, “Pershing’s Own,” performed at Southwestern University in November. The music performed spanned four centuries and showcased the talents of the individual members. With a combined military service of over 100 years, the members of the “Top Brass” have performed at the White House and around the world for events of national and international significance.
In addition to the concert, all six members of “Top Brass” held a master class for Southwestern University music majors. These students received a unique opportunity to interact with the band members, as they received invaluable instructions, techniques, and feedback on their performances.
