|Beat The Brass - How to Listen to Music|
What do Sousa, Saint-Saens, Dixieland and Disney have in common? They’re all included in the richly diversified repertoire of Solid Brass, the acclaimed brass and percussion ensemble.
Ranging from marches to fugues and Renaissance to Ragtime, music is made more meaningful when placed within a historical content.
The building blocks of sound production – melody, harmony, bass, and rhythm – are demonstrated in a lively manner in this performance filled with musical color.

"Celebrate America" is an entertainingly patriotic program about the folktales, legends and folksongs that have contributed to the cultural fabric of this great country we love! Through the use of storytelling, theater and music, Lou Del Bianco will bring to life some of American folklore's most colorful legends:
Paul Bunyan: America's favorite lumberjack will tell his best "Tall Tales" and at the same time expose children to the geography of the U.S.
Davy Crockett: Better known as the "King of the wild Frontier", Davy will tell how he befriends a raccoon and hugs a bear into strawberry preserves!
Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind: Davy Crockett tells about Sally, the gal he is head over heels in love with! Sally could tote a steamboat on her back, outscream a panther, and wear a hornet's nest for her Sunday bonnet!
Glooscabi and the Game Animals: This light hearted Native American legend is about an arrogant warrior and his Grandmother Woodchuck who teaches Glooscabi that "The earth does not belong to us. We belong to the earth."
Also woven throughout the assembly are some this countries most beloved folksongs: This Land is Your Land; I've Been Workin on the Railroad; Oh, Susannah! Wake, Snake; and Skip to my Lou.
