    From 1986 to 1997, Warner was a member of the King’s Brass, a nine-member sacred brass summer touring ensemble, with which he has recorded four albums. His arrangements can be heard on several of the group’s recordings.

    A native of Hanover, Pa., Warner moved to Chattanooga in 1984 to begin his collegiate studies. Prior to his teaching at Lee University, he taught applied low brass at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Southern Adventist University, Covenant College, and Cadek Conservatory. From 1989 to 1996, he served as manager of the Chattanooga Symphony Youth Orchestra.
