To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Spectrum Brass as Artists-In-Residence at the Bay View Music Festival, we were fortunate enough to be asked to perform the entire final Vespers for the 2021 Season. In our concert we showcased some of the greatest works of the brass repertoire by performing our favorite pieces from the last ten years of Vespers, recitals, and brass concerts. Our program included Anthony DiLorenzo’s Cosmos, a 2020 Spectrum Brass Commission, as well as works by Bozza, J.S. Bach, LaFosse, Ewazen, Susato, Kamen, Chesky, Piazzolla, Hamlisch, Ellington, and Elgar. We also were honored to perform Anthony Barfield’s Gravity for Brass Quintet, featuring Everette McCorvey’s reading of “Harlem” by Langston Hughes to accompany the piece. It was a special night for everyone…especially our esteemed horn player, Aaron Brant, who performed his final concert with Spectrum Brass after having joined us in 2012. We wish Aaron and his entire family the greatest of success as they embark on a new chapter in life. Looking forward to seeing everyone at Bay View in 2022.
