Tennessee Tech’s Brass Arts Quintet will present a free concert on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. in Wattenbarger Auditorium of the Bryan Fine Arts Building.
The Brass Arts Quintet is Raquel Rodriquez and Chris McCormick, trumpets; Greg Danner, horn; Joshua Hauser, trombone; and Daniel Davis, tuba.
The evening will begin with Giovanni Gabrieli’s “Canzona per Sonare, No. 4,” a work that was originally written to be performed in St. Mark’s cathedral in Venice. The quintet will move on to a more recent selection by Greg Danner titled “Shazam!,” a fast and furious mixed meter piece that gives everyone in the group a chance to show off. The centerpiece of the program is “Colchester Fantasy” by Eric Ewazen.Each of the four movements depicts a different pub in Colchester, England.
To close the performance, the quintet will present three works from its latest recording project, “Brass Arts Quintet Plays Chicago,” featuring the music of the classic rock band Chicago, arranged by Danner. The group will perform “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?,” “Just You ‘N’ Me” and “Alive Again.”
The concert is free and open to the public.
The Bryan Fine Arts Building is located at 1150 N. Dixie Avenue in Cookeville.
