The Des Moines Civic Center became a classroom for Hoover band director Ryan Rowley and ten of his brass musicians on Friday afternoon. They had the opportunity to take a master class from the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, an award-winning group of musicians who combine jazz, funk and hip-hop to take the classic brass ensemble in a new direction. After some individual and small group work, the musicians - professionals and students alike - took to the stage to jam on one of the group's songs. The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble performs in concert at the Civic Center on Saturday at 1:00 PM.
