WILMORE, KY—Artist Series welcomes Rhythm & Brass Friday, Sept. 12 in Hughes Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public. Seating is on a first come, first serve basis.
Rhythm & Brass incorporates influences from musicians, such as Pink Floyd, Johann Sebastian Bach, Josquin Des Prez and Duke Ellington.
This group has performed at the Carnegie Recital Hall, Chicago’s Mid-West International Band and Orchestra Clinic, the New York Brass Conference and Kentucky’s Great American Brass Band Festival. Rhythm & Brass was featured on “BET on Jazz,” performing several tribute pieces to Duke Ellington.
Despite an active touring schedule, Rhythm & Brass maintains an active involvement in music education. Their book, Team Play: A Guide to Making Chamber Music Together, is a method by which educator and student alike can teach and learn chamber music.
