With specialty in early keyboard instruments and recorder, Mr. Broege is an award-winning composer, performer, and educator throughout the United States. From recorder solos to sinfonias, Mr. Broege’s works have been performed by ensembles such as the U.S. Military Band, the Atlantic String Quartet, and the Cygnus Ensemble. After a full-time teaching career spanning over Chicago and New Jersey, Mr. Broege has worked as an active guest clinician around the country. He has earned the Edwin Franco Golden Award from the National School Band Directors’ Association and the 2003 Award of Excellence from the New Jersey Education Association.
The Carthage Wind Orchestra is recognized as a worldwide leader in commissioning and performing new works, including James Stephenson’s “This is Most Certainly True” (written for the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Church), Andre Previn’s “Music for Wind and Percussion,” Stacy Garrop’s “Mythology Suite,” and Xi Wang’s “Winter Blossom.” In addition, the Wind Orchestra has specialized in the production of silent film accompaniments created for regional tours, including “The General,” and “Metropolis.” The band has a long and distinguished history of service to Carthage and the artistic life of the communities of Kenosha, Wis., and Carthage, Ill., and has maintained a rich tradition of touring the Midwest, along with international study tours in Japan.
