"Brass (R)evolution"

Travel through space and time with the PSO Brass Quintet on a colorful and vibrant musical journey through many styles and genres of music composed specifically for the brass ensemble. The brass quintet of today traces its origin from many backgrounds including the streets of post-Civil War New Orleans, where disbanding military groups provided a sudden supply of cheap brass instruments and inspired a true crossover of creativity and innovation. From there, musical freedoms and avant-garde composers experimented with brass quintet music written in many different modern and post-modernist styles. This vibrant concert will leave the listener in a wash of sounds and impressions of the brass ensemble’s evolution. 

Ticket price includes appetizer, dinner & dessert from Jimmy’s a la carte menu. Drinks not included.
