The Brown Bag Lunch Program at the National Music Museum will feature a band who has been around for more than 25 years.
Deborah Reeves, Curator of Education at the National Music Museum, said A Sound of Brass has kept going over the years.
“The band was founded in 1984,” Reeves said. “Although it has had various members, it keeps going,” Reeves said.
A Sound of Brass is a quintet, which includes two trumpets, one trombone, one horn and one tuba.
“This is the first time they are coming here (The National Music Museum), and we are very excited to have them,” Reeves said.
Rolf Olson, Director of Band and the trumpet teacher who has previously played with the band says they play some soft and beautiful music, to some jazz.
“The group is all from around this area and I believe this performance will be polished and well done,” Olson said.
The Brown Bag Lunch Program tries to offer music from all over the country. They have featured groups from Europe and Washington.
“It is really cool to feature a local group like this, and show the talent we have in this area,” Reeves said.
The music they play is dance-themed with a touch of a historical approach and a bit of jazz. Although the students may not be used to this type of music, that is the Brown Bag Lunch Program’s goal.
Freshman Catie Gale said it would introduce and educate students about different types of music.
“The music could show them different historical times in music and how it has transformed, and possibly open their mind to different options of music,” she said.
