The internationally-acclaimed Boston Brass will perform in the Martha-Ellen Tye Recital Hall at Iowa State University on Monday, September 19 at 7:30 pm. They will be joined for one special selection by the ISU Wind Ensemble, conducted by Director of Bands Michael Golemo.
For 30 years, Boston Brass has set out to establish a one-of-a-kind musical experience. From exciting classical arrangements, to burning jazz standards, and the best of the original brass quintet repertoire, Boston Brass treats audiences to a unique brand of entertainment, which captivates all ages. The ensemble’s lively repartee, touched with humor and personality, attempts to bridge the ocean of classical formality to delight audiences in an evening of great music and boisterous fun. The philosophy of Boston Brass is to provide audiences with a wide selection of musical styles in unique arrangements, provided in a friendly and fun atmosphere.
Through over 100 performances each year, the members of Boston Brass play to audiences at concerts, educational venues and jazz festivals. They have performed in 49 states and 30 countries and have conducted master classes around the world including sessions and residencies at the Eastman School of Music, The Juilliard School, Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, Peabody Conservatory of Music, University of North Texas, Royal Academy of Music in London, Yong Siew Toh Conservatory at the National University of Singapore and Mahidol University in Bangkok.
According to Golemo, “Boston Brass is simply phenomenal. These are world-class musicians and we are so fortunate that they are performing with us at Iowa State. Their family-friendly concerts are fun and truly amazing.”
All tickets are $10 and this event is sponsored, in part, by a grant from the Alvin Edgar Fund, a part of the ISU Foundation.
