Dr. Brian Bowman, a world-renowned euphoniumist, will perform a recital on Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m. at Henderson State University’s Russell Fine Arts Center Harwood Recital Hall. Bowman will also give a master class at 6 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
Bowman is a retired member of the U.S. Navy and Air Force bands, and is currently the professor of euphonium at the University of North Texas. The euphonium, whose name comes from the Greek word for "good-sounding," is a brass instrument that looks like a small tuba and has a beautiful, lyrical tenor sound.
Bowman enjoys a distinguished career as a soloist, clinician, recording artist, educator and administrator. He has held the principal euphonium position, in addition to being a featured soloist, in each of the bands he has been associated with, including the University of Michigan Symphony Band, the United States Navy Band, the United States Bicentennial Band, the United States Air Force Band, and the River City Brass band in Pittsburgh, Pa. He is in demand as a guest soloist and has performed throughout North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. He has several euphonium "firsts" to his credit, including the first euphonium recital given at New York’s Carnegie Hall in 1976.
