Brass, Reeds, and Percussion: April 11, 2020

Although he composed music for film, television, and Broadway, Elmer Bernstein’s music is played every football season by the band of the University of South Carolina. That’s because the school’s fight song is based on his song “Step to the Rear” from his Broadway musical How Now, Dow Jones. He also has an Alabama connection because he wrote the score for the movie version of To Kill a Mockingbirg. He won an Oscar for the music for the 1967 film Thoroughly Modern Millie. He also won two Golden Globe Awards and an Emmy Award. He was nominated for two Grammy Awards. Today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion opens with his music from the 1963 film The Great Escape.
