Presidio…And All That Brass at the PACOctober 22, 2018
Come and meet those dancing feet in the Presidio Brass new Broadway-themed show on Friday, November 16, at the Performing Arts Center of Wisconsin Rapids. The Arts Council of South Wood County is pleased to present this performance at 7:30 pm. Mead Witter Foundation is sponsoring this show.
Since forming in 2006, Presidio Brass has rocketed to success as the face of a bold new generation in brass entertainment. By combining a brass quintet, piano, and percussion instruments with fresh, original arrangements, their unique sound has become a trademark for the ensemble from San Diego, CA, captivating audiences the world over. These five young men present film music with a good dose of wit and humor that together have become hallmarks of every Presidio Brass performance. Audiences and music critics agree, giving “Two Thumbs Up” and calling it a “Must See!” The show has been enjoyed internationally.
Each member of the ensemble began his music career by joining their school’s band program. Inspired by the dedication of their school music teachers, Presidio Brass came together with the primary mission to promote music education and music appreciation in youngsters. For this very reason, performances are often coupled with a master class. The Arts Council has arranged for the group to share their knowledge of chamber ensemble skills as well as to cover brass-playing “FUNdamentals” with local area high school students at Lincoln High School the afternoon before the show. (Contact the Arts Council office for more details about this free workshop.)
