Dallas Brass to perform Saturday

The famed Dallas Brass ensemble will perform Saturday in the Performaning Arts Center at Georgia Southern University.


       One of America’s most versatile musical ensembles is coming to the Performing Arts Center (PAC) at Georgia Southern University.

        The Dallas Brass will perform in concert at the PAC on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. A highlight of the performance will be a joint performance with the Dallas Brass and bands from Statesboro High and Southeast Bulloch High.

        The group has established a unique blend of traditional brass instruments with a complement of drums and percussion, creating an entity of extraordinary range. Its family friendly performances feature a blend of classical masterpieces, Dixieland, swing, Broadway, Hollywood and patriotic music.

        “Our ideal audience has a range in ages from 5 to 95,” said Michael Levine, the Dallas Brass founder and trombonist. “Our goal is to entertain and enrich by playing great music, while showing our audience how much we enjoy what we do.”

        Tickets for the Dallas Brass are $30 per person for the general public. Georgia Southern faculty, staff and students will receive a $5 discount for each ticket.

        In addition, if any tickets are available 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the performance, any Georgia Southern student with a valid university I.D. can purchase one ticket for $10.

        The Dallas Brass was founded in 1983. Since then, the group has played all over the U.S., including performances in Carnegie Hall in New York City and the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and toured Europe and Asia.

        In addition, the Dallas Brass played for former Presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush and appeared with numerous orchestras, including the Cincinnati Pops, the New York Pops and the Philadelphia

Pops.
        Along the way, the Dallas Brass has released six recordings: “Debut,” “Dallas Brass II,” “A Merry Christmas with Brass,” “Windborne,” “Nutcracker” and “American Musical Journey.”

        Also, the members of the Dallas Brass will present a Master Class with the combined bands of Statesboro High and SEB, as well as the Georgia Southern University Student Brass Quintet. The class begins at 1 p.m. on the day of the show. The $10 cost for the clinic for students also covers the cost of a ticket to the show.

        The PAC is located on the Georgia Southern campus at the corner of Chandler Road and Plant Drive. The box office is open every Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The box office is also open one hour prior to the start of each performance.
