The German Brass - Fun with Trombones!

This humorous video was shared to the UI Trumpet Studio by our professor, Dr. Amy Schendel. It definitely has the purpose of lightening everyone's mood. The video features the trombonists of the German Brass as well as some its trumpeters playing a fun tune called El Manisero (The Peanut Vendor) by Cuban composer, Moises Simons. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sweet sounds of many trombones!

The ensemble was founded in 1974 originally as a brass quintet, but later evolved into the ensemble it is known as today. German Brass is currently considered to be the best brass ensemble in Germany.
