A Festival of Brass and Ideas
A Live at 135 Series Concert
Live at 135 is a series presenting concerts on during New Haven's International Festival of Arts and Ideas every June. The vision of this event is to showcase unique and/or emerging musicians from the New Haven area. In the past we've featured Daniel Levin Quartet playing improvisational cello, Lara Usiskin playing Bach's complete Suites for Solo Cello, the Stacy Phillips and Paul Howard duet on dobro, fiddle, and guitar, Loop 2.4.3 playing a wide variety of percussion instruments, and Mon Monarch (made up of Eric Dawson Tate, Colin Meyer, and CT state troubador Chuck E. Costa).
Brass' contribution to this series is a concert showcasing the broad range of music we do and the personalities of the members of the group. As we play music of Holst, the Beatles, and jazz and TV favorites, you will hear us share about the experience of being in Brass, and the blend of virtuosity and playfulness that makes our sound and performances unique. An audience-centered concert, this performance will be our most intimate meet and greet yet!
To top it all off, we will be announcing details of our 15th season and holding a drawing for the winner of a private performance (entries limited to those who have donated to our Kickstarter project).
