EIBB to send 10-piece ensemble to NABBA competition
While the Eastern Iowa Brass Band will not be competing in the North American Brass Band Association large-group competition this year, they will be represented in the small ensemble competition. Eleven members of the EIBB are travelling to Grand Rapids, MI on April 10th to compete in the new 10-piece ensemble competition. This small group, the Big Ten Brass, consists of Paul Waech (cornet), Steve Kenny (cornet), Jeff Fountain (cornet), Keri Speidel (cornet), Bob Upmeyer (tenor horn), Chris Bird (Eb tuba), Paul Upmeyer (bass trombone), Randil Jeffreys (euphonium), Todd Bransky (euphonium), LeAnn Dahn (trombone), and Alex Beamer (director).
Good luck to the EIBB’s Big Ten Brass!
