Stowe Performing Arts is thrilled to partner with the acclaimed brass quintet, BOSTON BRASS, to present a free concert on Sunday, October 18, 2020 at 8 pm. The program will be live-streamed from Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts in Manistee, Michigan. Here is a special invitation from Jeff Conner, a member of Boston Brass.

This event is part of the special initiative created by Boston Brass — “Arts Across America: Community, Together.” The ensemble’s goal is to reach at least one city or town in each of the 50 states across America. Having presented Boston Brass in my early days with Stowe Performing Arts, I am honored to bring this program to Stowe. In addition to the live-streamed concert, the ensemble has sent a 30-minute instructional video to the students in the music classes in Stowe’s schools.

This real-time/live-streamed performance and educational initiative was created by Boston Brass in recognition that presenting organizations and music programs across the country are also experiencing the COVID-related difficulties of keeping their doors open, maintaining the interest of their patrons and helping school music programs in their communities to keep students engaged. With over 35 years of international touring behind them, Boston Brass offers a terrific, artistically entertaining “something-for-everyone” program featuring familiar classical works to popular jazz standards, all delivered with the ensemble’s signature audience interaction and charming rapport.

For over 30 years Boston Brass has set out to establish a one-of-a-kind musical experience. From exciting classical arrangements to burning jazz standards and the best of original brass repertoire, Boston Brass treats audiences to a unique brand of entertainment that captivates all ages. The ensemble’s lively repartee, touched with humor and personality, bridges the ocean of classical formality to delight audiences with great music and boisterous fun. The philosophy of Boston Brass is to provide audiences with a wide selection of musical styles in unique arrangements while maintaining a friendly and fun atmosphere. The quintet plays to audiences at concert halls, educational institutions, and music festivals, and regularly collaborates with orchestras, concert and marching bands, organists, jazz bands, and a variety of other ensembles.
