Lee University School of Music faculty Gordon James, Bill Pritchard, Dr. Doug Warner, and Dr. Nathan Warner, along with graduate student Caleb Hall, will present a brass concert on Monday at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.

As Principal Horn of Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, Mr. James has been playing and teaching horn for over 30 years. He is currently an adjunct horn instructor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Southern Adventist University, and Lee University. 

Mr. Pritchard serves as a tuba and euphonium professor and orchestral coach at Lee, in addition to being a low brass professor at Georgia College and State University. He began teaching in Atlanta in 2001 while he was a member of the Army Ground Forces Band. He currently plays tuba with the Midtown Brass Quintet, the Georgia Brass Band, the New Atlanta Philharmonic, and the Ludwig Symphony, among others. 

Dr. Doug Warner is chair of the department of music performance studies and professor of music at Lee. He has been Principal Trombonist of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera since 1985. From 1986 to 1997, he was a member of the King’s Brass, a touring ensemble with which he recorded four albums. 

Dr. Nathan Warner is assistant professor of music at Lee and has performed with the Chattanooga Symphony, the Knoxville Symphony, Lady Antebellum, Doc Severinsen, Peter Cetera, Clay Aiken, Slide Hampton, Lou Marini, and more. Prior to Lee, he was the Instructor of Trumpet at the Manhattan School of Music Pre College in New York City. He is an endorsed Bach Trumpet Artist. 

Mr. Hall received his bachelor’s degree in music business from Lee University in 2011 and is now pursuing his master's in music performance at Lee. In addition to performing, Mr. Hall has been working as a composer, arranger, and educator.

The concert is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public, though a free-will offering will be collected to support brass masterclasses at Lee.
