C Street Brass Performs Nov. 18 at Emory & Henry
A band that blends different genres of classical music with current electronic dance music will perform Tuesday, Nov. 18 at Emory & Henry.
The C Street Brass, which began as a small music project among five friends, will begin its performance at 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Chapel.
The band connects lovers of the arts from all walks of life around a unique and innovative concert experience. The group prides itself on being equally as comfortable in the sound world of baroque music as it is in dubstep. Through constant performance focused on discovery and growth, C Street Brass continues to expand the limits of what is possible with five brass instruments.
Recently the group held shorter-term residencies focused on education in Orcas Island Washington, Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA and they look forward to returning to University of South Carolina. Internationally, C Street Brass has toured in Tbilisi, Georgia as Resident ensemble of the Traveling Notes Music Festival in 2012 and to Doha, Qatar in 2013 as ambassadors for Carnegie Mellon University.
C Street Brass frequently collaborates with other artists to create new, exciting concert atmospheres for our audiences. In 2010 the group premiered “Two Pieces for Brass Quintet and Organ” by composer David Conte with famous organist and scholar Donald Sutherland. Recently, C Street Brass has been working closely with DJ, Jakeisrain, blending different genres of classical music with current electronic dance music.
Tickets for the event are $12 at the door or $10 in advance. Individuals 55 years and older and students from other institutions pay $8. Tickets are free to E&H students and employees.
