Moravian Lower Brass Recording Project

Back by popular demand, the Moravian Lower Brass ensemble recorded Moravian music for Lent and Easter on January 10-12, 2014.

Getting ready to record

Recording engineer’s video monitor, with Easter bunny ears!

The Moravian Lower Brass is made up of trombones, baritones, and basses – any tenor or bass brass instrument is welcome! The group plays at churches, civic clubs, annually at a game of the Winston-Salem Dash (baseball team), and pretty much wherever they can.

54 players, from 27 congregations, took part in the recording. MMF Assistant Director Gwyn Michel served once again as our “ears” (that is, producer), with MMF board member Frank Martin as recording engineer and MMF director Nola Knouse conducting. Also participating were MMF office manager Margaret Brady in the alto section, and MMF current and former board members Chris Jones, Mike Cude, Ray Gatland, Robbie Alphin, Allen Goslen, Joey Transou, Richard Henderson, Jerry Smith, and former MMF Development Director Bart Collins.

The new CD is scheduled for release this spring — yes, before Easter! Watch this space for updates and how to order your copy!
