Boston Brass performance available for viewing through Nov. 1
The Michael C. Rockefeller Arts Center is collaborating with one of the nation’s most acclaimed musical quintets to present “Boston Brass - Arts Across America: Community, Together.” The performance took place Oct. 18 at the historic Ramsdell Theatre in Manistee, Mich., and may be viewed at the below blue button link through Nov. 1.
This performance and educational initiative was created by Boston Brass in recognition that presenting organizations and music programs across the country are also experiencing the COVID-related difficulties of keeping their doors open, maintaining the interest of their patrons and helping school music programs in their communities to keep students engaged.
With over 35 years of international touring behind them, Boston Brass strives to offer am artistically entertaining “something-for-everyone” program featuring familiar classical works to popular jazz standards, all delivered with the ensemble’s signature audience interaction and charming rapport.
Boston Brass is Jose Sibaja (Trumpet), Jeff Conner (Trumpet), Chris Castellanos (Horn), Domingo Pagliuca (Trombone) and William Russell (Tuba). The quintet performed at Rockefeller Arts Center in October of 2011 as a part of the DFT Communications Pops Series.
