BRASS & SONG
Moving our planned Brass concert to March 2021, VIS presents the always musically-flexible and entertaining Back Row Brass Quintet in BRASS & SONG, a program of songs…without singing! You will enjoy everything from transcriptions of Early Music and classical composers to your favourite arrangements of opera, Broadway & pop hits and more! This truly diverse program will showcase virtuosic technique and a beautiful cantabile style of brass playing.
