Englishman STEVEN MEAD needs no introduction to brass enthusiasts around the world, as his playing and teaching have become known to virtually all who have a love for the euphonium.

As a soloist Mead’s career continues to break new ground, with more than 75 performances a year, prompted by his success as a member of several of the U.K.’s leading brass bands. In addition he has appeared with celebrated brass and military bands around the world and performed solo concerti with renowned symphony orchestras. Many commentators suggest it is Mead’s vocal background (from the age of 6) that is responsible for the truly unique beauty of his euphonium tone. His concerts and recitals are marked by a unique communication between artist and audience, and his rich, expressive approach to musical performance is universally admired. As a result he now tours regularly, performing with some of the globe’s finest brass, wind, and symphonic ensembles and orchestras.

Mead has been described as one of the world’s most-recorded solo brass artists, with more than 65 CDs produced since 1990. He is the owner of the Bocchino Music label, which produces and distributes his albums. He is professor of euphonium at The Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, U.K., and also at teaches at several specialist schools across Europe and Japan.

Steven Mead will appear as euphonium soloist on the Tacoma Concert Band’s concert Hands Across the Sea, Saturday, Nov. 21, 7:30 p.m., Pantages Theatre, tickets available through the Broadway Center Box Office.

Master Class sponsored by Hoover Music Performance and Lectures Funds, University of Puget Sound School of Music, and Tacoma Community College Music Department.
