Brass, Reeds, and Percussion: June 27, 2020 (Robert Browne Hall Day)

This edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion celebrates Robert Browne Hall Day. Robert Browne Hall was born in Bowdoinham, Maine, in 1858. Both his father and mother were musicians. By age 18, he was the solo cornettist of the summer band in Old Orchard, Maine. By age 24, he was a solo cornettist with the Baldwin Cadet Band of Boston. He composed over 200 marches, but only 62 were published. Nevertheless, several are famous and popular around the world. For example, the "10th Regiment March" is frequently performed at almost any British brass band concert. Indeed, it was a major part of the movie "Brassed Off," a 1996 movie about a struggling British brass band. The recording from the movie's soundtrack begins today's edition.
