Description

Although the members of the Saint Louis Brass look formal when they perform, audiences are pleasantly surprised at the relaxed and informal atmosphere they create. With extraordinary grace, the ensemble transforms the stuffiness associated with classical chamber music, combining professionalism and showmanship to produce a thoroughly enjoyable musical experience.

The Saint Louis Brass wil perform a great variety of selections featuring music from their CD "Pops Music of the Americas" and from several other CDs plus their new DVD. Especially for this tour, they will present the premier of Joshua Hobbs' "Four Times Five." Commissioned by the quintet in 2015, it was just recently completed.

Also new for this tour is Anthony Plog's "Animal Ditties" with music behind the clever Ogden Nash poems. On the light side is a new jazz medley "Tribute to Pops": hits of Louis Armstrong, plus everybody's favorite "St. Louis Blues." New to the Quintet is the hard driving tango "Libertango" by the noted Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla.
