The Northwinds Brass Band has been entertaining northern Wisconsin since 1986. This Christmas season we will feature euphonium player Vic DePaulis. He will play “Melody Shop,” a highly energy, technically demanding piece by Karl King. Vic started on the baritone horn, learning from hits father, a music teacher in the School District of St. Paul Park, MN. Vic has a rich history of solo euphonium performance with many groups in the Midwest, and Internationally. Vic currently resides in Danbury, Wisconsin and continues the mission to keep young adult musicians interested in performing beyond the secondary school years.

In 2012 we were gifted with “Sheridan Adventure” written by Dr. Su Lian Tan of Middlebury, Connecticut. Su Lian dedicated “Sheridan Adventure” to her friend, Dick Anderson, with whom she shares boot-making adventures in Sheridan, Wyoming every year. Dr. Tan has garnered numerous distinctions, including grants from Meet the Composer, American Music Center, and the Argosy Foundation, awards from ASCAP, an Irving Berlin Scholarship award, Naumberg Fellowship, and a Vermont Music Teachers Award. She holds a Ph.D. and M.M. from Princeton University, a M.M from the Julliard School, and a B.A. from Bennington College.
