Celebrations in Brass: The Honolulu Brass Choir at St. Andrew’s Cathedral
In eleventh century Europe, night watches would carry horns to mark the passage of time and to signal warnings. Gradually, the watchmen became proficient musicians, performing at ceremonies, official functions, and eventually, in social settings. Today military and political occasions are still marked with brass flourishes, and occasionally, churches and cathedrals ring with the spirited sound of brass choirs. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports on the Honolulu Brass Choir’s upcoming concert at St. Andrew’s Cathedral.
