“Brass en Masse” – AHB Trombone Choir
July 6 @ 6:30 pm
It’s a First at Muncie’s First Thursday — a 20-trombone team is set to sound off on
the stage at Canan Commons on July 6, 2023, from 6:30 pm to 7:30pm.
“Brass en Masse” is the Bernie Pressler Trombone Choir making a special
appearance at July’s downtown arts walk evening, and it is sponsored by America’s
Hometown Band of Muncie. The choir is named in honor of the late Bernard Pressler —
mega-talented professional trombonist & instructor for many years at Ball State
University, and progenitor of the BSU Trombone Choir.
This FREE performance by the Pressler players has all the voices expected of a choir
– soprano, alto, tenor, and bass. Through the different trombones, these voices create a
uniquely warm brass sound. The music repertoire includes bits of classic, secular,
swing, and pop tunes. This ensemble is led by Don Lamb, former student of Pressler,
retired band director, and long-time trombonist with America’s Hometown Band.
As part of the Arts appreciation events in downtown Muncie on July 6, this group
deserves a listen — which may be another First for many lucky attendees.
