This concert featured a top-notch quintet of Baltimore Symphony Orchestra brass musicians including Principal Horn Phil Munds, Principal Trumpet Andrew Balio, Assistant Principal Trumpet René Hernandez, Principal Trombone Aaron LaVere, and Tuba player Chris Tiedeman. They were joined by Brown Memorial’s Music Minister Michael Britt at the organ.
The first half of the program was traditional brass and organ pieces by Handel, Mozart, Gabrieli and others. The second half included holiday works by Guaraldi, Tchaikovsy and Steve Allen (yes, that Steve Allen), arranged for brass ensemble by Sean O’Laughlin, as well as other favorites of the season. BSO Percussionist Barry Dove joined the second half.
Famed organist Carol Williams played “Flight of the Bumblebee” on the organ’s foot pedals—with live video projection on the big screen—as part of this Tiffany Series concert. Her program featured classical organ works, show tunes, a march and original compositions. This funny charismatic, brilliant British organist achieved “rock star” status during her 15 years as San Diego Civic Organist.
This concert featured the work of Francis Poulenc. Poulenc’s “Gloria” was performed by Brown Memorial’s Chancel Choir and soprano Natanya Washer. The program also included Poulenc’s “Sonata for Four Hands,” performed by Michael Britt and E. Joseph Teter.
