Pelgrim Brass

The Pilgrim Expedition

Bas Duister and Ferdi Seelbach – trumpet
Harry Stens – horn
Alejandro Luque Belmonte – trombone
Stefan Knuijt – tuba

Scurvy, homesickness, affairs… After setting sail from Rotterdam, the crew of the Mayflower suffered many plagues before reaching the New World and becoming the Pilgrim Fathers. Pelgrim Brass – from Rotterdam, of course  – takes you on a journey and revives John Carver, first governor of Plymouth Colony,  to deliver a compelling report of the trip’s many hardships. The Pilgrim Expedition features brand new arrangements of Dvořák’s New World Symphony, among others.
