On November 5th, Indiana Wesleyan University will be hosting it's first Brass Day. This is an opportunity for area brass musicians to work alongside college students while learning from our faculty and guest artists. The cost is only $10 which does not include lunch. There are places on campus to eat during the lunch break (including Chick-Fil-A).
Our two guest artists are Greg Alley and Chance Trottman-Hueit. Greg was principal trumpet with the U.S. Army West Point Band for over 20 years and currently performs with the Holland Symphony and Tim Zimmerman and the King's Brass. Chance is an active substitute with the Fort Wayne Philharmonic and the tuba instructor at IPFW. He is currently pursuing his DMA at Michigan State. Dr. James Kraft will be leading the Trombones/Euphoniums. He is a former 2nd trombone with the National Symphony Orchestra and former member of the Navy Band Washington D.C. Michael Flanagin is the Director of Bands at Indiana Wesleyan University and received his undergraduate degree from Indiana University and played in the top ensembles while there. He is a GREAT horn player.
