PALMETTO BRASS TO PERFORM IN GREENWOOD
November 23, 2014 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Palmetto Brass will perform in a free concert on Sunday, November 23, at 4:00 PM, as a part of the FESTIVA Arts Series of First Presbyterian Church. The Palmetto Brass is a quintet recently founded in the South Carolina upstate by some of the area’s finest brass players. The group is comprised of a variety of backgrounds from freelance musicians to university professors, but all of the members share a strong passion for brass music and a desire to share it with others. Founded in a world where string quartets rule the chamber music scene, the Palmetto Brass was started to bring the sound of a small brass ensemble to festive events and concerts. While the group frequently plays popular brass pieces from the romantic age and more modern brass works, it also seeks to bring an exciting new perspective to classic works written for other small ensembles. Palmetto Brass combines passionate playing with the big sound of brass instruments for a truly unforgettable experience. All FESTIVA events are free to the public, and childcare is provided for preschool children. This project is funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the John and Susan Bennett Memorial Arts Fund of the Coastal Community Foundation of SC.
