Classic Brass at Eastern Connecticut State University

Written by Kate Harner

Willimantic, CT -- Classic Brass, a band that performs British-style brass band music, will perform at 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 3 in Shafer Auditorium at Eastern Connecticut State University. Eastern's Performing Arts Department will sponsor the event. The public is invited. Admission is free.

Classic Brass will perform brass band transcriptions of pieces by George Gershwin, Gustav Holst and Morton Gould. The program will also include original brass band compositions by James Curnow, Philip Sparke and Paul Lovatt-Cooper.

Started in 1988, Classic Brass gives local adults who played brass wind instruments throughout high school and college the opportunity to continue performing in their later years. Adam Crowe has directed the band since 2003. Its musical repertoire varies from sentimental songs usually associated with concert bands and pieces selected from operatic literature to more informal pieces from the Swing Band era and the Great American Songbook.
