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!
Come join the Ohlone Wind Orchestra as they tell stories of war, romance, tradition, nature, and more - through music. Included are: Shaker Suite by Rayburn Wright (featuring the Ohlone College Brass Quintet and Shaker melodies from Appalachian Spring), the tragic yet romantic Riften Wed by Julie Giroux, the fast-paced Frenergy by John Estacio, the sacred hymns of Sacred Harp by Jay Bocook, the grandiose Marche Slave by Peter Tchaikovsky, the graceful and gritty Pageant by Vincent Persichetti, and more.
