Manhart to perform at University of Wisconsin concert
ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University Professor of High Brass and
Jazz Studies Dr. Grant Manhart will perform at the University of Wisconsin Varsity Band Concert April 18-20.
The three-night event features multiple acts backed by the 250-piece University of Wisconsin Marching Band. It incorporates indoor pyrotechnics, a huge arena sound system and 50-foot projector screens inside the 20,000-seat Kohl Center on the Wisconsin campus.

Manhart will perform the Harry James trumpet hit “Moanin’ Low,” backed by the UW band. Then his trumpet sound will soar over the band at the end of the “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” medley. He finishes with a trumpet/tuba battle with “Youngblood Brass Band” founder Nat McIntosh on the Louis Armstrong hit “Struttin’ With Some Barbeque.”
Manhart is a Wisconsin marching band alum and has been featured several times since 1981. In 2004 and 2006, the NSU trumpet group “Dominant 7” was featured at the concert.  In 2011, Manhart soloed with Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show" drummer, Ed Shaughnessy.
