Sounds of Easter Brass at St. Marks Cathedral, April 24, 2011

Searching for the sounds of glorious brass for your Sunday morning Easter service? St Marks Episcopal Cathedral in Shreveport has been highlighting Brass and Timpani with its adult and youth choirs conducted by its Music Minister and organist Don Smith for many years and I have the honor of contracting and playing with these fine professional musicians. The personnel may change from year to year depending on players' family obligations, but the inspired congregation members never fail to crowd around the ensemble for the final Postlude with organ and brass following the benediction to listen to and thank us for our participation.
