Our first concert of the season, "NEXUS," features Brass Over Bridges, a brass quintet hailing from San Fransisco. Inspired by the Bay Area's artistic community, Brass Over Bridges pulls from an array of different artistic styles and disciplines. In addition to their concerts, they're also heading community engagement projects to engage and inspire young musicians in their community.
The quintet will present several contemporary works, including a world premiere by Pacific composition student Robert Huntington. Following the performance from Brass Over Bridges, members of the 28/78 New Music Ensemble will present an array of pieces set for small ensembles.
