US Air Force Brass Section presents master class

The United States Air Force Band performed a concert at Arizona State University, Thursday, October 25.  Each section of the band presented master classes to ASU music  students.  The brass section presented a panel discussion about careers in the military.  It was a wonderfully informative session!  It was also Jan Duga’s final concert on tour, as she will retire later this year.  Jan Duga is a graduate of Arizona State University, and studied with Daniel Perantoni.  Brava to Jan!  And, thank you to the brass section for a great master class and concert!
