Introducing Monsoon Brass, Artists in Residence,
at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church!
From Luther’s time onward, the Protestant church has taken seriously its role in the formation of musicians. In this same spirit, our church is excited to be selected as the home of the Monsoon Brass for the 2017-2018 choir season. Just as the city of Tucson is dependent on the monsoon to bring us water, the church will be blessed by the musical nourishment of this brass ensemble that is comprised of some of the finest musicians in the state of Arizona.
Like the monsoon, this collaboration will have a ripple effect in our church, bringing in community members for concerts, worship and music and art events.
This newly formed ensemble includes the following players: Jason Carder and Betsy Bright, trumpets, Victor Valenzuela, French Horn, Joseph Munoz, Trombone, and David Morgan, Tuba. The ensemble was formed this past summer.
This partnership between Our Saviour’s Lutheran church and Monsoon Brass has been facilitated by Homero Ceron, Principal Percussionist in the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. Homero plays for us frequently for our services and is instrumental in helping Susan arrange for guest musicians throughout the choir season.
This group of musicians will be providing musical services to the church for worship, concerts, educational presentations, and other music endeavors. The ensemble will work closely with Susan.
This is yet another exciting way our church is impacting the community. Join us on October 30 at 7:30 p.m. for the inaugural concert of the Monsoon Brass!!!
