Neal Corwell, euphonium player and award-winning composer, will visit Kansas University next week.
Corwell will teach a master class for KU tuba and euphonium students at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in Swarthout Recital Hall, and he will perform a recital featuring his original works at 7:30 p.m. in the same location. The events are free.
Corwell was a featured soloist for eight years with the Army's premier band, "Pershing's Own." Corwell took some time off from performing with the armed services band and earned his doctoral degree in music from the University of Maryland. He recently rejoined "Pershing's Own" and continues to travel as a solo musician.
Corwell is a former executive committee member of the International Tuba Euphonium Assn. and a former board member of the International Women's Brass Conference. Corwell is the editor for the International Tuba Euphonium Association Journal and also performs as a member of Symphonia, a professional ensemble of low brass performers.
