Brass Ensembles

The Luther College Brass Ensembles include the Brass Choir, Horn Choir, Trumpet Ensemble, Trombone Choir, Trombone Ensemble, and Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble. Students may also participate in the following smaller ensembles: brass quintets, trombone quartets, and and tuba/euphonium quartets. Repertoire is selected from six centuries of musical resources including transcriptions and original compositions. The ensembles perform one major concert per semester, as well as other on-campus or off-campus performances throughout the academic year. Participation is open to all brass musicians with appropriate performance skills. Students normally register for Music 273 for these ensembles.


The Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble and Trombone Ensembles are conducted by Michael Smith and Benjamin Yates, the Trumpet Ensemble by John Cord, and Horn Choir by Rebecca Boehm Shaffer.
