Brass Choir to Perform
The Lee University Brass Choir

The Lee University Brass Choir will present a concert on Tuesday, Nov. 14, at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall, under the direction of Dr. Nathan Warner.

The evening will feature works by Georg Frederich Hӓndel, Richard Maltby, Modest Mussorgsky, Richard Strauss, and Dr. David Holsinger, a professor of music at Lee.

“This ensemble is one of the most dynamic and exciting of its kind in the area,” said Dr. Nathan Warner, assistant professor of music at Lee. “With a broad spectrum of musical selections to present, this concert should surely be circled in red on your calendar.”

The Brass Choir has 18 brass players who explore the unique repertoire of large brass ensemble literature and various transcriptions.

Warner performs regularly as a classical, orchestral, commercial, big band, and jazz artist in New York City, where he lived for 15 years. He has performed with the Chattanooga Symphony, the Knoxville Symphony, Lady Antebellum, Doc Severinsen, Peter Cetera, Clay Aiken, The Temptations, Olivia Newton-John, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, and The Glenn Miller Orchestra, among others.

As a champion of music education for inner-city youth, Warner was the music teacher at St. Mark the Evangelist School in Harlem and has worked with the Midori and Friends Foundation. He 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 has served on the faculties of the Manhattan School of Music Pre College and the City College of New York. He is an endorsed Bach Trumpet Artist.

The Tuesday evening concert is a free, non-ticketed event, and is open to the public.
