Smoky Mountain Brass Band Concert – June 2, 2013

smbb29seasonThis Sunday, June 2, 2013, I’ll be conducting the Smoky Mountain Brass Band in concert at Hazelwood Baptist Church in Waynesville, NC at 5 PM. This is a free performance.

If you missed our concert last April 28th, we’re going to be performing some of that music again, including Brass Metamorphosis by James Curnow and Eric Whitacre’s Sleep, arranged by one of our cornet players, Peter Voisin. We’ll also be playing some new music, including an arrangement of music from the soundtrack to Jurasic Park, the U.S. Navy hymn, Eternal Father Strong to Save, and an arrangement of 76 Trombones from the musical, The Music Man.

This is a free concert, although a goodwill offering will be collected. If you’re in western NC this weekend and looking for some live music to listen to, come on out and hear the best (and only) British style brass band in the area.

My name is Larry Solt, conductor of the Vermont Brass Ensemble at the University of Vermont. We would like to perform Eric Whitacre’s “Sleep” next semester. I just found your web site and noticed one of your members arranged this: ” Eric Whitacre’s Sleep, arranged by one of our cornet players, Peter Voisin.” Is it possible to use Peter’s arrangement for our fall semester’s concert? My email is *************
I had intended to ask Eric’s permission to arrange “Sleep” for our Brass Ensemble. Please let me know at your earliest convenience if we may borrow Peter’s arrangement. Thank you very much.
