October 13 • 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. on WAAM • Ann Arbor
Ed welcomes back noted soprano Elizabeth Mitchell, who will be joined by Emeritus Teacher of Music Joseph DeMarsh. They will describe the historic Dodworth Saxhorn Band and its upcoming concert October 16, 7:00 p.m., at Watkins Lecture Hall, U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance. Founded in the 1840s in New York City, the DSB was America’s premiere all-brass band through the Civil War years. Reformed in 1985, the Band, now headquartered in Ann Arbor, features 50 professional musicians who perform on original period instruments. Also joining the discussion will be the distinguished professor Lester Monts, Director of the Stearns Collection of Musical Instruments. Listen as ‘ancient’ music – and instruments – come alive again!
