Brass Master Class

Brass Master Class with David Thornton

Friday, February 7 – 1:00-3:00

PSSD Division Office, 121 Klassen Street, Warman

We have a wonderful opportunity for our Brass students to work with an amazing musician!  This will be a joint Master Class with the PSSD East Brass students so we decided to have it in a central location for everyone involved.

Students attending will have to provide their own transportation, so I encourage you to car pool.  Parents can stay and listen to the Master Class as well, if they wish.

Students need to bring their instruments as they will be getting a chance to play as well as listening!

“David Thornton is regarded as one of the foremost euphonium players and teachers of his generation and has a global reputation as a performer and clinician.

His work as a soloist, conductor and educator is renowned throughout the brass playing world to have a distinct hallmark of extreme virtuosity, professionalism and an ability to connect with audiences like few others in his field.

In 2001 he was named as ‘The International Euphonium Player Of The Year’ and in 2004 his debut solo CD, ‘Three Worlds’, was awarded Solo CD of the Year by the British Bandsman magazine.

David is a Sterling Musical Instruments performing artist and consultant. He plays exclusively on the Sterling Virtuoso Euphonium.”
