  • Guest Artist: Neal Corwell, euphonium & electronic music recital
    7:30pm - 9:00pm
    Music Building Recital Hall

    Dr. Neal Corwell’s professional career began in 1981 when he won a euphonium position with The US Army Band, “Pershing’s Own”. He soon became a popular and frequent featured soloist with the Concert Band of that organization. In 1989 he departed from the military to teach at two colleges (Shepherd University, & Frostburg State University), complete his doctoral degree at the University of Maryland, and launch a career as a traveling free-lance soloist and clinician. He also began composing, recording and publishing his own music at this time. In 2001 Dr. Corwell again won an audition for a position at “Pershing’s Own”, and subsequently finished out his military career in 2016 when he retired from his positions as bass trumpet for The U.S. Army Herald Trumpets and euphonium section leader of The U.S. Army Ceremonial Band. Since retirement, Master Sergeant Corwell has resumed his career as a guest artist, regularly traveling to colleges and universities across the country and abroad.

    His program at the University of Vermont will feature a diverse sampling of his work in the electronic field from some of his first works for solo with pre-recorded accompaniment (featuring his vintage analog synthesizer) to more recent projects which make us of live electronic sound processing.
