The Massanutten Youth Brass Band is a hit
December 19, 2012
“I love playing with the Massanutten Youth Brass Band. The literature is fantastic and everyone is exceptionally ‘band-nerdy’…. in a good way,” junior Abe Nouri said.
Sunday night’s concert was a fundraiser for the Salvation Army and included a joint performance with the Massanutten Brass Band including HHS Associate Director of Bands and Choirs, Ian Richard, on the tuba. The MYBB played arrangements of Fanfare Jubiloso by James Curnow, Huron Carol by Kevin Norbury, A Christmas Overture by Gavin Whitehouse, Veni Immanuel arr. by Philip Sparke, Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano and arranged by Dorothy Gates, and finally, The Spirit of Christmas by Peter Graham.
“I thought that the concert was really good, and I thought there was a good size crowd. I thought my performance was really good and it was really satisfying to be able to keep up with these college kids,” senior Trevor Cockburn said.
“I had a good time performing. It’s nice to play in a different setting than in school,” freshman Ava Reynolds said.
The next performance of the Massanutten Youth Brass Band is on Saturday, March 23, with the JMU Brass Band.
