May 21, 2017 - BrassWorks Quintet - A Concert of Patriotic Music in Celebration of Memorial Day on The Wesley Stage
It is easy to forget what Memorial Day actually means while sitting at the pool looking ahead for summer vacation. It means much more than just a three-day weekend!
The great BrassWorks Quintet will help us honor veterans and current members of our armed services and to celebrate the unofficial beginning of summer, mixing serious reflection with more lighthearted fun, and will turn our thoughts to those men and women who gave their lives for our freedom.
On the BrassWorks song list is music from each of the armed services, great Sousa marches, and patriotic music popularized in movies and the theater. They are sure to remind us of the real meaning of Memorial Day and to celebrate sacrifice and public service with the many Veterans in our community.
This highly professional brass quintet has played to audiences in New York City, North Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania. Its members are all extraordinarily talented and all have graduate and advanced degrees in music education and performance. We are proud to welcome them back to our stage on May 21, 2017 at 4 PM.
