Indianapolis Brass Choir concert review 

Despite being a non-professional group of volunteer musicians, the Indianapolis Brass Choir makes a sound on par with any professional group in the city. Renowned music educators Dr. Robert Grechesky and Rusty Briel skillfully led the group through a menagerie of pieces. All the standard brass band pieces were there: an arrangement of "Back Home Again in Indiana," the "Armed Forces Salute," a John Philip Sousa march. But this concert also had more. The piece "The Late, Late Movie on Channel 88" by John Berners, a professor of music composition at the University of Indianapolis, was a nostalgic trip through the old film-noir flicks of the '40s and '50s. Berners' orchestration, which relied heavily on the percussion section, was spot on, capturing all the nuances of the old style of scoring pictures. Greg Gibson, director of music/organist for Christians United Church, was featured on Naji Hakim's otherworldly setting of "Old Hundredth"
