Classic Chamber CONCERTS AND OUR SCHOOLS
The 2018-2019 Season has begun! Our first concert, an evening with the Philadelphia Brass Quintet. Even more exciting, the next morning, December 18, members of the ensemble and our Artistic Director, Michael Finn, met at Baron Collier High School to listen to the school’s brass quintet. Present as well, the school’s full roster of band members.
After listening to the ensemble play a piece that they’ve been working to perfect, each member of the Philadelphia Brass Quintet made suggestions to improve their sound, tempo, and to listen even more carefully to one another. The Quintet then played the same piece and answered questions from the student musicians.
The more than an hour-long workshop was a success. It was a dialogue between seasoned professionals and aspiring students. This is but a foretaste of what is planned for the concert season as it progresses . . . and with the season, more stories and more pictures!
