Blue Ridge Symphonic Brass
November 17, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Maestro Jamie Hafner will lead the Blue Ridge Symphonic Brass in a free brass concert on Sunday, Nov. 17, at First Baptist Church of Brevard. The BRSB, a 20-plus member brass choir, is dedicated to sharing the unique symphonic brass repertoire with music patrons in area communities. The 3pm concert is free and open to the public. Donations are accepted. The program may surprise those not familiar with the wide variety of repertoire possible with a brass ensemble. The concert opens with the Fanfare and Chorus by Dietrich Buxtehude and includes a brass version of the beautiful Sevilla by Spanish composer Isaac Albeniz, an antiphonal version of Giovanni Gabrieli’s Canzona Septimi Toni No.2, Poéme Heroique by French composer Marcel Dupré, and a lighthearted version of the early ragtime tune Nola by Felix Arndt. The Blue Ridge Symphonic Brass draws its outstanding musicians from the Brevard, Hendersonville, Asheville and Greenville areas.
