The group, which will play on Feb. 24 at 7 p.m., features six musicians that play music that spans early American music to today, including works by Copland, Bernstein, Gerswhin, and John Williams.
While the PAC stage typically welcomes talented musicians and theater acts, this show offers something a little different rom the norm. Band students from Watertown-Mayer High School and Middle School as well as the Waconia High School will perform with the Dallas Brass to conclude the concert.
According to Michael Levine, the founder of Dallas Brass, “a Dallas Brass concert is intended for the entire family. Our goal is to entertain and enrich by playing great music.”
The ensemble has played with symphony orchestras nationwide, including wtih the Cincinnati Pops, New York Pops and the Philly Pops.
They have also performed at top-tier venues like Carnegie Hall and the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., and played for Presidents Gerald Ford and George H. W. Bush.
Because of prestigious and student involvement, the concert is expected to sell out.
