Y O U   A R E   I N V I T E D !

You are invited to attend the Alderson Broaddus University Brass Choir’s 17th Annual “Brass in the Grass” Concert to be held Sunday, April 26, 2015 at the Campus Center quadrangle at 3:00 pm.  The concert is free and open to the public.  Bring lawn chairs and blankets for outdoor seating.  In case of inclement weather, the concert will be held in Wilcox Chapel, also at the center of campus.

This final concert of the two-day brass festival features current Brass Choir members, ensemble alumni, prospective students, area teachers, professional performers, community folks, and friends. In recent years, we have been over eighty in number, and the music ranges from fanfares and staples of the brass repertoire to folk songs, patriotic tunes, and jazz.   Events are under the direction of Dr. Timothy DeWitt professor of music.

Those of you who are brass players may wish to join us in the performance and for the entire two-day festival!  If so, please RSVP to Dr. DeWitt at
