Henry and the Dallas Brass

Second Concert of the Season
This one will be Henry, playing with the Dallas Brass on Tuesday, November 15th at 7:00 pm.  They are also playing with RMS and CHS on Thursday evening.

The Dallas Brass are coming to town!  Have you heard of them?  Founded by Michael Levine (originally from Minnesota) and they are an inspiration to young musicians everywhere.  If you search for them on YouTube you will find hundreds of comments by young kids who have had the opportunity to listen, learn and play alongside these phenomenal men and women.

"The Dallas Brass has become one of America’s foremost musical assemblies.  The Dallas Brass concert, American Musical Journey, incorporates a full complement of brass and percussion for an engaging musical travelogue through American history.  Music will be selected from the masters – Copland, Bernstein, Gershwin, Berlin, John Williams, Sousa; various American styles will be represented as well:  Dixieland, swing, folk, patriotic, and pop."

I can't wait to start the season!  I love this type of music and am sure I won't be able to sit still.  Might actually embarrass my family with my toe-tapping.

Check here more information on the ISD #281 website.
See you there!
