Church on the Cape presents brass concert

The Kotzschmar Festival Brass, comprised of a select group of musicians from the Portland Symphony Orchestra, will perform at The Church on the Cape in Cape Porpoise on Aug. 10 at 7 p.m. Joining the ensemble will be Portland municipal organist Ray Cornils, who is also director of music at the First Parish Church in Brunswick and a member of the faculty at the University of Southern Maine.

The ensemble is comprised of brass and percussion instrumentalists who all perform with the PSO.

Cornils has frequently joined the group, including the opening concert of the American Guild of Organists Regional Convention. As with all their concerts, that performance received rave reviews.

Members include: John Schnell, Betty Rines, Alan Kaschub and Daniel Duncan, trumpet; John Boden, Sophie Flood, Nina Miller and Carolyn Cantrell, horn; Nicholas Orovich, Sebastian Jerosch, Mark Manduca and Tom Michaud, trombone; Dan Hunter, tuba and Nancy Smith and John Mehrmann, percussion.

This concert is presented by The Keith McClelland Community Music Foundation, which is dedicated to encouraging the performance of quality music in the Kennebunks.
