lonna-brooksLonna Brooks joined Milwaukee Festival Brass in January of 2004, after hearing the band play at the inaugural U.S. Open Brass Band Festival. She has played French horn for many years, including stints in University and community ensembles in Des Moines, Albuquerque and Chicago. She is currently active in the Madison Brass Band, the VFW Band, the Capitol City Band and the Blessed Brass, all in the Madison area, and enjoys the frequent switches between French horn and tenor horn. She drives two hours to get to MFB rehearsals, and finds it’s worth the trip!
