The Jericho Brass will perform at the First Christian Church, 650 McCallie Ave. at 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3. The concert will include a mix of genres: marches, solos, sacred and major program compositions.
The band is made up of 35 professional and college trained musicians from the Greater Chattanooga area, Cleveland and as far away as Conyer, Atlanta and Rome, Ga. under the direction of Frank Hale. Averaging 15 concerts a season, Jericho Brass is one of the busiest brass bands in the nation. The band also has players who contribute their skills as composers and arrangers providing the band with fresh new charts on a regular basis.
The band will feature Shelby Walker, band director at McMinn Central High School, performing a Euphonium solo “Largo al Factotum” by Rossini. Chattanooga's beloved Jay Craven will also be featured with the band on his Clarinet in a rendition of the “Concerto for Bb Clarinet” by Artie Shaw and arranged by Dan Hanson.
This is a free concert open to the public.
