Low Brass Ensemble

The Low Brass Ensemble was founded in the Fall of 2001 and is open to any student interested in playing trombone, euphonium or tuba in an ensemble setting.

The group performs arrangements, original compositions, and the standard repertoire for the tuba/euphonium and trombone ensembles.

The ensemble performs several times during the school year at departmental and university functions, local Ruston area events, as well as presenting its annual Octubafest recital.  In addition to performing, student members have the opportunity to write arrangements, original compositions, and rehearse and conduct pieces on the concerts.

For more information, contact Adam Johnson.
