6/13/2013 Musicians are Europe bound

Epperson, Kreidler to perform in Germany, Austria

Two local musicians are on their way to Germany and Austria where they’ll be performing with the All Colorado Community Band.

Trombonist Dan Epperson and flutist Charlene Kreidler will be touring the European countries from June 13-22. They’ll perform five concerts jointly with local German and Austrian community bands.

The All Colorado Community Band is made up of about 30 members who were recruited from community bands all along Colorado’s Front Range.

Both Epperson and Kreidler are well-known in Colorado music circles.

Kreidler plays in the Denver-based Over the Hill Band, and also performs with the Southern Colorado Community Band in Canon City.

Epperson holds a BA and MA in music education and music performance and, prior to his retirement, taught music in Jerfferson County schools for 35 years. He has performed in a number of musical groups, including symphony orchestras, concert bands, brass ensembles and jazz bands in Denver, Colorado Springs, Pueblo and Canon City. He currently is a member of the Southern Colorado Community Band and the Pueblo Municipal Band.
