Welcome to my new blog. This blog has been created as part of the Advanced Brass Ensemble Literature course at the University of Iowa. I will be posting here quite frequently throughout the semester, so please stop by from time to time.
To get things started, I would like to share one of my favorite brass band pieces and performances. This is a video of the Cory Band from South Wales. They are currently one of the top brass bands in the world and have been for many years now. This video is their performance of “Enter the Galaxies” from 2009′s Brass In Concert. Enjoy!
Update: This video was just changed to a private video by the Cory Band. I have replaced it with a performance of "On The Shoulders of Giants."


  1. Looking forward to learning more about brass band and its history. Thanks!

  2. Brass band is pretty amazing and serves as a justification for the existence of the euphonium. It's a win-win situation. Also, when I typed in the word "euphonium", I got a red squiggly line under it. So euphonium (more red line) is not recognized as a word by Blogger, but squiggly is. Have a nice day RanDIL.

  3. Great group. Keep it coming with these groups.
