Army Brass Quintet

Last night, the University of Iowa enjoyed a visit by the U.S. Army Band Brass Quintet, from "Pershing's Own" band in Washington D.C.  They presented a wonderful, entertaining, and classy recital - including music of Bach, Haydn, and Glinka. They are on their mid-west tour and we were pleased to be the first stop. After the concert, they generously gave a masterclass for several of our students, and provided some valuable feedback. As a brass musician, a military career is a valid option, especially in this economy, so it was good to hear and see how much these military musicians enjoy their jobs.
