On Nov. 1, the Shippensburg University Brass Ensemble and Saxophone Choir held a concert under the tent in the Ceddia Union Building (CUB) Amphitheater.
The groups each played four pieces ranging from well-known pieces like, “Second Suite in F” by Gustav Holst, all the way to obscure pieces.
Because of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the brass ensemble was not able to have a percussion section. Instead, they performed with three trumpets, three trombones, a French horn and a tuba.
Ironically, both ensembles played the same exact piece by Percy Granger, which was titled “Ye Banks and Braes O’Bonnie Doon.”
The SU Music Department will host another concert featuring the flute choir, community orchestra and string ensemble in the CUB Amphitheater on Nov. 8 at 2 p.m. Admission is free to all.
