April meeting will feature the OMNI BRASS in a return visit. Founded in
2006 by trombonist, Dr. Karen Marston, the group also includes John
Stanley on bass trombone, Jody Ilgenfritz and Kevin Shannon on trumpet
and Michael Mizma on percussion.
Since its inception, this ensemble has combined an active freelance career in and around the Houston area with significant recital events focused on expanding the repertoire for brass ensemble. In 2008, they were quarter finalists in the Fischoff International Chamber Music Competition. In 2012, they made their international debut as featured guest artists at Café Corotu, an innovative concert series in Panama City, Panama.
OMNI BRASS released a debut CD, “The Red Album” in 2014. The program on April 8 will feature varied works by composers from Gabrielli and Hindemith to Bernstein and Fats Waller.
Social time begins at 10:00 am and the meeting will begin at 10:30 am.
Gloria Dei Lutheran is located at 18220 Upper Bay Road in Nassau Bay, 2 blocks south of the Johnson Space Center.
