Brass Ensemble—Inside the brain of the brass player (a scary event not on Halloween)
Enter, if you dare, a musical event where the musicians tell you what they are actually thinking as they prepare for a concert. The first half of the concert, will give you insight into how music is chosen for a particular event. The second half will be more of a performance, with pieces from the first half of the rehearsal chosen by the audience to be performed in their entirety.
