Brass Band Northwest comes to Old Town to start up the 2019-2020 Classical Tuesdays in Old Town season. Gather up friends and family and head out to Old Town Park on Saturday, Sept. 14 for the festivities that start at 4 p.m. Admission is free.
Bring your lawn chair and picnic makings for the party on the lawn. The Old Spaghetti Factory has offered to treat everyone to Italian sodas as the music plays.
By popular demand, Brass Band NW returns to showcase their unique blend of music ranging from the classics to the Top 100, combining the rich sonority of a full symphony orchestra with the incisive rhythm of a jazz band.
The band was founded with the goal of sharing the vibrant and exciting sound of all-brass music throughout the Pacific Northwest. Though grounded in the tradition of the British brass band, Brass Band NW’s library of more than 400 works ranges from Renaissance composers such as Giovanni Gabrieli to contemporary works such as the sound track for the video game “Halo.”
In addition to the band’s annual concert series at First Presbyterian Church of Bellevue, the players perform at a variety of other events, such as the Leavenworth Christmas Lighting Festival, Yarrow Point’s Independence Day Celebration, Seattle Mariners games and Classical Tuesdays in Old Town.
Brass Band NW is a great choice for outdoor performances. As a 30-member brass and percussion group, the music can easily be heard where ambient noise levels often cover other groups. For most events, Brass Band NW does not require amplification and therefore can perform without electricity.
