Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (November 18, 2017)

Most of us know Charlie Chaplin because of his silent films, especially The Tramp, made in 1915. And probably most of know him as an actor, but Chaplin wrote, directed, produced, edited, starred in, and composed the music for most of his films. So today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion features music composed by Charlie Chaplin and arranged for performance by wind band.
