2017 PLU High School Brass Workshop

Fingers on instrument keys

October 8, 2017

Mary Baker Russell Music Center | Gina Gillie, Director

This free workshop for high school brass players will be hosted by the PLU Lyric Brass Quintet.  This year, we will have a special guest, Kerry Turner.  Mr. Turner is a professional horn player, composer, clinician, soloist, and former member of the American Horn Quartet.  Participants in the workshop will attend a presentation by Mr. Turner, have a master class with specialists on their instrument, participate in a brass choir, talk with current college students over snacks, and browse Jupiter instruments.  The day will end with a concert presented by the Lyric Brass Quintet, and participants will perform at the end of the concert.  This year’s brass choir piece is a newly written composition for horn solo and brass choir by Gina Gillie.

All high school brass players welcome!

Kerry Turner - International Soloist, Composer and Former Member of the American Horn Quartet.
