Codieck was one of nine euphonium
players on Saturday.
While teenagers playing button accordions and mouth organs can now qualify for a place on national television, those studying the euphonium
are having their entries rejected.
Performers at the concert included Dave Thornton - principal euphonium
player with the renowned Black Dyke Band - and Leslie Niche, who is a recent graduate from the Royal Northern College of Music.
It's mostly compositions of my own creation for a very large brass ensemble - six trumpets, four French horns, four trombones, two euphoniums
, two tubas, harp, percussion, piano and drum.
Prior to each concert performance, a small ensemble of DWS brass musicians-trumpets, horns, trombones, euphoniums
and tubas--performs one brief fanfare in the lobby of the Meyerson Symphony Center.
Cornets, flugelhorn, tenor horns, baritones, trombones and euphoniums
all make up a brass band.
The instruments, all from the wind section of the orchestra, include alto saxophones, clarlnets, trumpets and euphoniums
