Dallas Brass to make debut March 1

Dallas Brass, one of America’s premier brass and percussion ensembles, will perform at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 1 at Westmoore High School, at 12613 South Western.

The performance is part of OCCC’s Cultural Arts Series which provides concerts for students and the community, said Lemuel Bardeguez, Cultural Arts Director.

The group, which tours professionally, features music through the ages, from classical to popular.

The Dallas Brass also will hold a clinic with the Westmoore High School band and perform select pieces with them at the concert.

“One of the missions of the Dallas Brass is to provide music education for kids,” Bardeguez said. “What they do is come to the school and do a clinic for the band. In addition to the clinic, they rehearse with the band and incorporate them into two of their numbers for the production.”

Bardeguez said he encourages everyone to attend the one-of-a-kind performance.

“It’s a great evening of entertainment and it’s fun for the entire family,” he said.

“It’s the kind of show that will appeal to people who want to bring their families and kids that enjoy music, so it has something for everybody.”

Videos of the group performing can be found on www.youtube.com.

Tickets for the performance can be bought online at www.occc.edu/cas or through the college. General admission is $24.50. Students and children are $12.50. Seniors and OCCC employees are $19.50.
