Concert Hall

Enjoy this extraordinary 17-piece brass ensemble as they present a program that will change the way you think about brass! Embark on a journey From Bach to Classic Rock that travels from music originally played in powdered wigs to music meant to be played with black t-shirts and pyrotechnics, all displaying the powerfully majestic brass sound. The ensemble also welcomes guest soloists Joe Burgstaller and Martin Hackleman for this performance. Washington Symphonic Brass has extensively toured the East Coast with an expansive repertoire and now brings nostalgic favorites from across the centuries to our stage. Founded by the late conductor Milt Stevens and acclaimed trumpeter Phil Snedecor, Washington Symphonic Brass features some of the most talented musicians from the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore areas many of whom routinely perform with the National Symphony Orchestra, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and The Philadelphia Orchestra. "Brass, boldly redefined…." (The Washington Post)
