Northwestern College and the Orange City Arts Council welcome Boston Brass to campus at 7:30 p.m. today (Nov. 3) for a concert. Boston Brass will join the NW Symphonic Band and Woodbury-Central High School for a performance that is sure to captivate all audiences.
Throughout the past few years, the Boston Brass ensemble has presented several workshops and master classes for students from both NW and Woodbury-Central.
The five acclaimed musicians will be joined onstage by NW’s Symphonic Band and one hundred area students. This will take place during the first half of the concert, and they will perform some of their favorite pieces.
Additionally, the audience will have the opportunity to vote during intermission on their own favorites to build the setlist for the second half. The interactive concert will invite patrons to share the stories behind their selections. The most intriguing narratives will be shared by the band in the intros to each piece.
The Boston Brass have been playing and performing for 31 years, performing over one hundred times a year at concerts, educational venues and jazz festivals. The group has set out to establish a one-of-a-kind musical experience, while fulfilling their philosophy to “provide audiences with a wide selection of musical styles in unique arrangements, provided in a friendly and fun atmosphere.”
Throughout the course of the group’s history, the Boston Brass has performed in 49 states and 30 countries. Many of these travels have included conducting master classes around the world.
The group’s lively repertoire and generous helping of humor and personality help to “bridge the ocean of classical formality” and to delight crowds with a wide selection of musical styles.
Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults, $10 for students and $5 for NW students.
