Students Perform Onstage with World's Top Brass Band
2019 Nov 14
Students in the James Madison University Brass Band performed onstage with the Cory Band, the world's top brass band ensemble. This performance marked the first time the JMU Brass Band has played onstage with Cory Band at the Forbes Center. The two bands have performed onstage together two other times: at the 2017 Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) Brass Band Festival in Manchester, England, and during a concert tour of England and Wales by the JMU Brass Band in 2008. The South Wales-based Cory Band played at the Forbes Center in February 2016, when the JMU Brass Band had an opportunity to work with them.
