|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Ranging from marches to fugues and Renaissance to Ragtime, music is made more meaningful when placed within a historical content.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.
