The UAB Department of Music will present its Second Annual UAB Brass Symposium, which will be held on February 7th – 9th, 2013 on the University of Alabama at Birmingham campus. This year's featured clinician will be the legendary trumpet soloist and Shires Trumpet Artist Vincent DiMartino. Mr. DiMartino will present performances with the UAB Jazz Ensembles, Brass Quintet and Choir as well as present a clinic for all Brass Symposium participants. In addition to Mr. DiMartino, we will also offer concerts and clinics by our own UAB faculty.
A highlight of the Symposium are the High School Honors Ensembles, which basically are “an Honor Band for Brass.” The students prepare pieces for performance in an all-brass environment, where they can learn specific techniques involved with improving brass listening and ensemble skills.
The registration deadline is Friday, January 25th, 2013.
