Any ideas on the name of this rose?

I just started gardening at my church and have four roses to care for. Three were labeled but this one simply had a wire with no tag. The roses have been here for years I think and are irrigated in our Las Cruces, NM heat. This rose is about 30" high, the leaves are a medium green with a matte finish. It doesn't have many thorns and I'm supposing it's a floribunda. The flowers have no scent and are about 2.5 to 3 inches across. The petals are a pretty coral color with yellow at the base. The flowers soon fade to a rather nondescript pale color but they hold on for an amazingly long time. I don't know much about roses but I tried to answer any potential questions. Thank you for any ideas, I'd love to know what someone planted along side the Honor and two Blue Ribbon roses.

This unknown rose isn't pink (to me anyway). I called it coral but maybe apricot is a better description. Also, it has quite a bit of yellow on the outside of the petals when it's just a bud and barely open. I have a picture of that but didn't see how to put 2 pictures on.

Could be a fully blown Bill Warriner.

It looks a lot like Brass Band.

You're right, some of the photos of Brass Band are a very close match! I'll have to try and find out when the roses were planted to make sure it wasn't before that rose was developed. Thanks!
