Gabrieli Festival

Springfield, OH

Sunday afforded a rare glimpse of Dan (pictured above) conducting rather than playing music for an audience. This marked the 25th year for the Gabrieli Festival, a brass choir invitational, held on the campus of Wittenberg University.

Groups from area colleges performed, with a combination of all the “choirs” playing together at the end. Pretty powerful stuff as trumpets, trombones, tubas and (french) horns surrounded the chapel (even up in the balcony) to play a work form the namesake of the festival.

An excellent Sunday.

  1. Just wanted to say I love your site and it inspired me to start mine back up (for a third time). I spent a few hours on your site and the pictures are great. Well keep up the good work.
