Newly added to my ‘friends’ page is a link to Leave Of Brass, a brass quintet based in Bloomington Indiana. My sister is one of their trumpet players, and I can guarantee they would be more than happy to take your gig if you’re near IU Bloomington.
Yes, the group’s name comes from the Walt Whitman collection by almost the same title. The group thought that the name would do a good job honoring many of their members’ interest in poetry. Plus, you must admit the pun is cool.
