The Colts are excited to announce that the entire brass team will be returning for the 2018 season. The team will be led by Brass Caption Head Chad Miller and Brass Arranger Gordon Henderson and brings with them experience from a wide range of backgrounds spanning several decades of performing, designing, adjudicating, and instructing. They are all very excited to continue building on the successes of the 2017 Colts brass program.
“The staff vibes last season at the Colts were unlike anything I have ever experienced," said Caption Head Chad Miller. "There was synergy from day one and across all captions. With the full return of the brass staff, as well as many of the other caption's staff, to say I am excited for another opportunity to spend a summer striving for excellence with this group of people would be an understatement.”
The brass team includes Tom Santino, Tom Lizotte, David Torres, Justin Diaz, Steve Lyons, Keith Hallas, and David Abrams. New to the Colts this year is Bill Muter. Bill is a multi-instrumentalist, author, producer, and tuba mogul based in southern Florida, with performance and educational experience around the world.
