The Golden Tones is Luther College's first all-female brass quintet. Five college students joined together to dismantle stereotypes surrounding women in the brass world. The Golden Tones’ exhilarating performances display their technical strengths and musical range. Coached by Dr. Rebecca Boehm Shaffer, the quintet's musical selections encompass a broad spectrum, ranging from baroque to contemporary music. The Golden Tones and Dr. Boehm Shaffer hope to inspire their fellow female brass players to fiercely confront the gender barriers present in the brass world and beyond.
