Baylor Brass, the School of Music's faculty brass quintet, will present a concert at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 18, in the Paul Powell Chapel of George W. Truett Theological Seminary.
The program will open with Three Chorale Fanfares by contemporary Belgian composer Wilfried Westerlinck, followed by Armenian composer Alexander Arutiunian's four Armenian Scenes, "Morning Song," "Drinking Song," "Song of Grief" and "Wedding Procession."
The quintet will then perform the Suite for Brass Quintet by Robert Dillon, a three-movement work that dates from 1969.
Following intermission, Baylor Brass will present a performance of the Four Spanish Renaissance Villancicos. The anonymous pieces, based on rustic songs from the Spanish Renaissance, have been arranged for brass quintet by Karl Hinterbichler.
The program will conclude with American composer Eric Ewazen's three-movement Frost Fire, an intricate and heroic work that was written to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the American Brass Quintet.
Baylor Brass is comprised of Professor of Trumpet Wiff Rudd, Associate Professor of Horn Jeffrey Powers, Assistant Professor of Trombone Brent Phillips, Lecturer in Tuba David Graves and graduate student Thomas Madeja, a trumpet performance major who studies under Rudd.
The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor University School of Music at (254) 710-3991.
