FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Dallas Brass, one of the country's foremost musical ensembles, will close the 2010-2011 Distinguished Performance Series Saturday (April 9) in a concert at West Virginia University at Parkersburg.
The 8 p.m. program will be held in the college's Multi-Purpose Room.
Tickets are available in the college's Business Office. Tickets are $10, adults; $5, students. WVU Parkersburg students may purchase special advance tickets. All tickets at the door are at regular price.
The Dallas Brass will present "An American Musical Journey," a panorama of musical selections from the nation's earliest days to the present. The musical travelogue through American history from the time of George Washington to present day will include music from the masters -- Copland, Bernstein, Gershwin, Sousa and Berlin -- as well as swing, Broadway, patriotic and popular, including music from the Tijuana Brass and Chicago.
Founded in 1983, the ensemble has performed at Carnegie Hall and John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, has toured throughout the United States, Europe and the Far East and has been guests of American orchestras, including the Cincinnati, Philadelphia and New York Pops. The group has established a unique blend of traditional brass instruments with a full complement of drums and percussion, which creates a performing entity of extraordinary range and musical challenges.
The program is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History and the National Endowment for the Arts with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
