A bold new generation in brass entertainment, Presidio Brass (comprised of brass quintet, piano and percussion) shakes up the “stuffy” ensemble repertoire to present an evening of music straight out of Hollywood! Featuring some of cinema’s greatest hits, this concert will include classical music used in movies, such as Barber’s Adagio, and original music from some of the most popular movies of all time!
Through their touring show of Hollywood’s greatest hits, Sounds of the Cinema, these five young men present film music with a good dose of wit and humour that together have become hallmarks of every Presidio Brass performance. Audiences and music critics agree, Sounds of the Cinema is “Two Thumbs Up” and a “Must See!” The show has been enjoyed internationally, with performances and educational outreach programs throughout North America. Presidio Brass has performed in over 40 states, conducted master classes at many of America’s finest colleges and universities, and has been featured on National Public Radio.
Members of Presidio Brass have performed with major symphony orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Pacific Symphony and the San Diego Symphony. In addition to performing as a brass quintet, Presidio Brass performs regularly as a part of Millennia Consort, one of the nation’s premiere brass, organ and percussion ensembles.
Presidio Brass has released three recordings: Stolen Moments, a collection of popular classical and jazz selections, Christmas Day, an assortment of well-loved holiday favourites, and Sounds of the Cinema, which includes pieces from their signature stage performance of the same name. Look for their newest CD of popular American music, which will be released in 2013.
