The DMLBT wants to invite students of all ages to their 3rd LOW BRASS DAY. Students will learn brass techniques that will improve their music making, sound production, breathing, ensemble playing, and practice efficiency. The day will feature performances and masterclasses led by the faculty trio, as well as group rehearsals, 1 on 1 instruction, sectionals, and much more.
The day culminates with a performance by YOU (as part of the Large Student Ensemble) at the Civic Center, prior to the DMSO Concert.
Immediately after the student performance, all students will be provided with FREE tickets to the Des Moines Symphony Concert. This is an educational opportunity you CANNOT MISS!
If your son or daughter has anything but a great experience, we will refund your money.
