What fun and thank you to all who participated!
We did plenty of exercises and rehearsing. Spencer Marsh performed the first movement of Saint-Saens Concertpiece and Bridget Gervais played some of Chabrier’s Larghetto for the master class.
Lunch was on the Drake University Campus and it was a great day for a stroll across the grounds led by students of the Drake horn studio. Participants tried out beautiful new horns brought by Rieman Music.
The recital included: Shaw’s Frippery No. 4, Bach chorales, an arrangement of the Finale from Stravinsky’s Firebird, and Sousa’s El Capitan March. Also through narration and extended horn techniques, students assisted Guinevere McIntyre in a performance of Eric McIntyre’s Jabberwocky from A Visit from the White Rabbit,
