Brilliant Brass – Mission Peak Brass Band (MPBB)

In the tradition of British-style Colliery Bands, The Mission Peak Brass Band is chuffed to present an engaging introduction to the brass band genre. The program promises to be chockablock full of musical styles - from the storytelling of George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and James Horner’s The Mask of Zorro to the ethereal Pie Jesu by Gabriel Faure, the rousing Spitfire & Hurricane March by F.S.Robson/S.Hague, and music by such well-known British composers as Philip Sparke, Ben Hollings, and Peter Graham. Our featured performers include John Monroe on Euphonium, Chris Wilhite on Flugelhorn, Dave Adams and Ken Walter on Cornet and Keith Johns on Eb Soprano Cornet. It’s going to be the bee’s knees!
