Presidio Brass to Perform on Nov. 13 as Part of Big Sky Concert Series
The Northeastern Arts Network presents Presidio Brass on Thursday, November 13th as part of their Big Sky Concert Series. Since forming in 2006, Presidio Brass has rocketed to success as the face of a bold new generation in brass entertainment. By combining a brass quintet, piano and percussion instruments with fresh, original arrangements, their unique sound has become a trademark for the ensemble from San Diego, CA, captivating audiences the world over.
Through their touring show of Hollywood's greatest hits, Sounds of the Cinema, these five young men present film music with a good dose of wit and humor that together have become hallmarks of every Presidio Brass performance. Audiences and music critics agree, Sounds of Cinema is a "Must See!" The show has been enjoyed internationally, with performances throughout North America.
Each member of the ensemble began his music career by joining their school's band program. Inspired by the dedication of their school music teachers, Presidio Brass came together with the primary mission to promote education and music appreciation for youngsters. Members of Presidio Brass have performed with major symphony orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Pacific Symphony and San Diego Symphony. In addition to performing as a brass quintet, Presidio Brass performs regularly as part of Millennia Consort, one of the nation's premiere brass, organ and percussion ensembles.
