Warren Gerds/Critic at Large: Review: Weidner Philharmonic brass serve a smorgasbord

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – A buffet is a lot of different food. A smorgasbord is a lot of different food made with a flair. The definitions are right here in my dictionary.Served Monday evening in a special livestream concert was a varied menu of music for brass quintet. The smorgasbord included, in order in the program below, works that could be labeled regal, inventive, sweet, sacred, jaunty and mucho gusto. Versatility marked the concert “Brass Musicians of the Weidner Philharmonic” – versatility in programming and performing. The event was part of University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s “6:30 Concert Series,” which has become a virtual offering since the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has throttled most live, in-person performances.
