On February 15, 2018, the Indiana Brass Band donated a significant trumpet reference work to the Orendorff Music Library. The multi-volume work, titled Trumpet and Other High Brass by Sabine Katharina
Klaus, was donated in honor of Kevin Eisensmith by his friends and colleagues from the Indiana Brass Band. This work will be available in the Reference Collection of the music library.
The Indiana Brass Band is dedicated to exploring the American Brass Band movement of the mid-19th century and performing the music on original instruments. The band has performed for historic and civic events throughout the Eastern United States. National
Park Service engagements include regular visits to Antietam, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, Harpers Ferry, Manassas, and Monocacy.
The bands performs extensively in Western Pennsylvania and at musical festivals and other events in towns such as Bethlehem and Lancaster, Pennsylvania; Winston-Salem, North Carolina; and Wheeling, West Virginia. The Indiana Brass Band has been invited
to perform in the Governor's Residence in Harrisburg as well as the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. The Wildcats have been fortunate to participate in musical events at the Smithsonian Institution and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.
