Neal a professional Euphonium player, composer and arranger
Dr. Neal Corwell’s professional career began in 1981 when he won a euphonium position with The US Army Band, “Pershing’s Own”. He soon became a popular and frequent featured soloist with the Concert Band of that organization. In 1989 he departed from the military to teach at two colleges, complete his doctoral degree, and launch a career as a traveling soloist and clinician. He also began composing, recording and publishing his own music at this time. In 2001 Dr. Corwell again won an audition for “Pershing’s Own”, and subsequently finished out his military career in 2016 when he retired from his position as euphonium section leader of the Ceremonial Band. Since retirement, Master Sergeant Corwell has resumed his career as a guest artist, regularly traveling to colleges and universities across the country and abroad.
Dr. Corwell has worked diligently during his 35 years as a professional musician to gain recognition for the euphonium as a solo instrument. As part of this effort, he has presented over 1,100 solo euphonium recitals, and has appeared at hundreds of regional, national and international music conferences, to include over a dozen featured artist performances at ITEA-sponsored International Tuba Euphonium Conferences. Neal Corwell is also a respected and award-winning composer and arranger. The primary focus of his work in this area has been directed toward the creation of new euphonium and tuba music, but he has also written for other wind instruments, strings, voices, and diverse ensembles, both small and large, to include symphonic bands and orchestras.
