Are you a trombone, euphonium, or tube player? Need plans for Saturday January 27th? If so, Brandon University’s 3rd Low Brass Festival (BULBFest), is the perfect place for you to spend your leisure hours. The event takes place from 8:00AM until 5:00pm, and will be located in the School of Music Queen Elizabth II Building.

Why is it the perfect place to spend your leisure hours? You only have to pay ten dollars for registration which will include not only lunch (and who doesn’t love cheap lunch), but also includes admission to the evening concert featuring the renowned trombonist Al Kay!

Al Kay has been performing for the past twenty eight years, playing lead trombone with RobMconnell’s Bass Brass and has worked with multiple jazz artists and entertains such as Dizzy Gillespie, Diana Krall. One review on his website comments on how “he seems to ‘sing’ through his horn.” (musicforbrass.com) He’s definitely a musician worth spending your Saturday evening listening to!

Al Kay isn’t the only notable presence, acclaimed tubist Richard White is another talented musician who has been performing for over twenty years in classical music.  Not limiting his talent to that of music, Richard While is also a professor and motivational speaker. White is the second featured artist present at BULBFest.

Other performers will include Brandon University’s own Brandon University Low Brass Ensemble, the Manitoba Trombone Collective, the University of North Dakota Trombone Choir, and the University of New Mexica Tuba Ensemble. Don’t forget to bring your own instrument as well for the mass festival choir! Needless to say, the event will have a variety of events suited for all low brass ensemble enthusiasts.

Don’t blow your chance to attend this festival!
