Cedarville, Ohio—What do cornets, flugelhorns and euphoniums have in common? They are all part of the Brass Band of Columbus, making its debut at Cedarville University in March.

“The Brass Band of Columbus is one of the finest brass bands in America,” states Michael DiCuirci, Sr., professor of instrumental music and organizer of the event. “They have won the North American Brass Band Association contest 10 times. It is great to have them here.”

Michael DiCuirci, Jr., son of DiCuirci, Sr. and adjunct instructor of music, is a member of the band and will perform in the tuba section. The band has been under the direction of Tim Jameson since 2005 and presents genres ranging from classical to show tunes.

Founded in 1984, the Brass Band of Columbus is comprised of both brass and percussion. The 45-piece ensemble includes over 30 active or retired music educators, as well as other professionals.

DiCuirci, Sr. promises a night to remember. “If you like powerful and well-played wind music this is a concert you should not miss.”
