CVAC presents Presidio Brass

On April 11, the Presidio Brass will appear at the CVIC Hall in Minden.

“Since forming in 2006, Presidio Brass has rocketed to success as the face of a bold new generation in brass entertainment,” organizers said. “By combining a brass quintet, piano and percussion instruments with fresh, original arrangements, this Yamaha performing ensemble from San Diego, Calif., has developed a truly unique sound.”

Through their touring show of Hollywood’s greatest hits, Sounds of the Cinema, these five young men present film music with a dose of wit and humor that together have become hallmarks of every Presidio Brass performance.

“Audiences and music critics agree, Sounds of the Cinema is ‘two thumbs up’ and a ‘must see,’” organizers said. “The show has been enjoyed internationally, with performances and educational outreach programs throughout North America and China.”

Presidio Brass has performed inmore than 40 states, conducted master classes at many of America’s finest colleges and universities, and been featured on National Public Radio.

Members of the Presidio Brass have performed with major symphony orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Pacific Symphony and San Diego Symphony.

When not on tour, they continue to perform with orchestras, maintain private teaching studios at local universities, arrange and compose new music, assist with public school music programs, and operate an annual summer music camp for students of all ages.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $28 at the door; students with ID and children are $5. There will also be an educational workshop for Douglas County music students.
