CBB played at the Chicago Brass Festival with Rex Richardson

On Saturday, March 9th, at 2:00pm, the Chicago Brass Band performed with
internationally renowned trumpeter Rex Richardson at the 2013 Chicago Brass
Festival at Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) in Chicago.

Virtuoso trumpet soloist Rex Richardson -- veteran of the acclaimed chamber group
Rhythm & Brass, the Brass Band of Battle Creek, and jazz legend Joe Henderson's Sextet
-- performed Rextreme, a concerto composed specifically for Rex by Lake Forest
native James M. Stephenson. This was the North American premiere of the brass band
arrangement of Rextreme. Additionally, the band played Martin Ellerby's Elgar
Variations, one of the works to be played at the North American Brass Band
Championships in Cincinnati this April.
