Marshall to host concert by Brass Band of the TriState

Marshall University will host a concert of British music by the Brass Band of the TriState at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 21, in Smith Recital Hall. Among the pieces to be performed are Holst’s Second Suite, Elgar’s Nimrod, a movement from Handel’s Water Music Suite and a brand-new tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Dr. Michael Stroeher, professor of low brass in Marshall’s School of Music, serves as director of the band.

“Since we are a British-style brass band, I thought it was appropriate to perform British music, but you don’t have to be an Anglophile to enjoy the concert,” he said. “There’s something for everyone.”

The concert is free and open to all.
