Dr. Neal Corwell, a member of The U.S. Army Band -- "Pershing's Own" -- will present a recital at Frostburg State University on Thursday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Pealer Recital Hall. The recital is free and open to the public.
Corwell served in the Washington, D.C., military band from 1981 to 1989, and he recently rejoined that organization and is again playing euphonium as a member of the armed services. During the intervening years, Corwell earned his doctorate in music from the University of Maryland and made his living as a freelance musician, appearing in Europe, Asia, and all across the United States as guest euphonium soloist and composer. He also was an adjunct faculty member at both FSU and Shepherd College, teaching low brass and electronic music.
Over 40 of Corwell's original works and arrangements are published, and several have been included on recent recordings. His solo CDs include "Distant Images" (1994), "Heart of a Wolf" (2000), and the soon to be released "Out Sitting in his Field" (2002).
