Wonderful concert by Brass Unlimited, great audience

This week's Classical Tuesdays in Old Town concert was performed by the Brass Unlimited quartet. The members are David Mulkins and Karl Ronning on trumpets, and Keith Gorsuch and Eric Stevens on trombones. All four are professional music-educators in the Tacoma public schools.

Thanks to Jamie for the photo of the concert!

Brass Unlimited had appeared in the first season of our series, and we were happy to bring them back -- by popular request. They played wonderfully, individually, and especially as an ensemble, as only a group that has performed together for ten years could. Let's be sure to watch for the Brass Unlimited tenth anniversary concert at the end of January.

The pieces performed Tuesday night were often lyrical and mellifluous, at other times sonorous and stirring. The program was full of concert favorites composed by Beethoven, Mozart, Frackenpohl, American-great Copland, and many others. All the selections were transcribed by member Keith Gorsuch.
