Army Principal Euphonium Player PerformsBy James Andrew Dunlap | September 5th, 2013 | Category: Features | No Comments »
Dr. Neal Corwell, an accomplished euphonium player, will be performing a recital Friday, September 13 in the auditorium of the Fine Arts Building. The recital begins at 11 a.m. and will last until 1:30 p.m.
Corwell began his trek as a professional musician over 32 years ago and since has worked hard to get recognition for the euphonium as a solo instrument. A euphonium is a tenor-voiced brass instrument that gets its name from the Greek word euphonos which means “well-sounding”. In 1981 Corwell earned a position as euphonium player with a premier Washington D.C. Military Band. Since then he has become known also as a soloist/recitalist, composer, professor, and a recording artist.
Accompanying Corwell for the recital will be his wife Kathryn Sincell-Corwell. Kathryn also is an accomplished vocalist and musician. Kathryn has both a B.A. and M.A. in Vocal Music Performance, and has served as faculty for both Frostburg State University and Hagerstown Community College. Kathryn now takes on the task of teaching private voice and piano lessons.
Please come out September 13 at 11 a.m. to see a wonderful performance.
