A wild ride of blazing technique and seamless precision.
Tuesday, April 14, 2015 (tickets on sale 3/23)
Since forming in 2006, Presidio Brass has rocketed to success as the face of a bold new generation in brass entertainment. By combining a brass quintet, piano and percussion instruments with fresh, original arrangements, this Yamaha Performing Ensemble from San Diego, California has developed a truly unique sound. Members of Presidio Brass have performed with major symphony orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Pacific Symphony and San Diego Symphony.
Through their touring show of Hollywood’s greatest hits, Sounds of the Cinema, these five young men present film music with a good dose of wit and humor that together have become hallmarks of every Presidio Brass performance. Audiences and music critics agree, Sounds of the Cinema is “Two Thumbs Up” and a “Must See!” The show has been enjoyed internationally, with performances and educational outreach programs throughout North America and China. Presidio Brass has performed in over 40 states, conducted master classes at many of America’s finest colleges and universities, and been featured on National Public Radio
