Brass Choir to Perform Fall Concert Tuesday

The Lee University Brass Choir will host its fall concert on Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.

The concert will be in honor of All Souls’ Day and Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Music to honor those who have passed away will be played at the event. Music from composers such as Clause Debussy, Edvard Grieg, Konstantin Listov, Richard Strauss, and John Williams will be featured.

The Brass Choir currently consists of 23 members and has grown in quality and number since its inception in 2014. The group rehearses and performs throughout the year.

“The ensemble’s ability to tackle difficult works has grown immensely and continues to improve,” said Dr. Nathan Warner the ensemble director. “This is a testament to the quality of student that this fine music school is attracting.”

Warner is an assistant professor of music at Lee. He has performed with the Chattanooga Sympony, the Knoxville Symphony, Lady Antebellum, and The Temptations, among others. He performs regularly as a classical, orchestral, commercial, big band, and jazz artist in New York City, where he lived for 15 years.

An advocate for music education in the inner-city, Warner taught music at the St. Mark Evangelist School in Harlem, New York. Warner is a founding member of the Sugartone Brass Band, one of the few successful second-line bands not indigenous to New Orleans to find success outside of the region.

Warner received his doctorate from Stony Brook University, his master’s at Manhattan School of Music, and a bachelor’s in music from Indiana University.
The concert is a free, non-ticketed event and open to the public.
