Brass from the Masters
April 6, 2014 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Orchid City Brass Band, South Florida’s professional British-style brass band, presents a concert of music by the best-known composers of all time. The afternoon performance will feature transcriptions of classical favorites along with music composed specifically for the brass band by major composers that will thrill and enchant such as Festive Overture by Shostakovich, A Downland Suite by Ireland, The Liberty Bell March by Sousa, “Dance of the Tumblers” from the Snow Maiden by Rimsky-Korsakov, “Venus” from The Planets by Holst and concluding with the powerful “Pines of the Appian Way March” from the Pines of Rome by Respighi. Also spotlighted on the concert will be cornet soloist Forrest Sonntag in a virtuostic rendition of Paganini’s The Carnival of Venice.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students with ID and can be purchased at orchidcitybrass.org or at the door on the day of the concert.
