Our launch event for potential new SoundSport AND DrumBattle ensembles will be this Friday, May 18 at 7 p.m. The event will be held at 2700 Winter Street in NE Minneapolis (the ‘Sears rehearsal site’ familiar to MBI alumni). Potential members in any section including brass, percussion and color guard should plan on attending. This will be a great opportunity to meet key members of the staff and prepare for a fun summer moving and playing. Please complete an information form as soon as possible to indicate your interest!
As previously announced, Minnesota Brass is excited to explore launching a new SoundSport ensemble to perform at regional events and the DCI World Championships in Indianapolis. If interest warrants, a DrumBattle ensemble may also be launched for percussionists!
Joel Matuzak will lead the program design for both ensembles. Brass instructors include Paul Terry, Mark Santori and John Devine. Jordan Warfield will provide leadership for the visual program. Trevor Alwan will serve as director of the ensembles coordinating staff and administrative needs.
The schedule for the SoundSport unit will require regular Friday night rehearsals and some weekend performances. The DrumBattle ensemble will rehearse on Saturday with weekend performances as well. The launch of both ensembles will be contingent on the interest-level and participation commitment of prospective members. Questions? E-mail Trevor!
