The Jericho Brass will be performing at the First Presbyterian Church at 101 S. Selvidge St. in the heart of Dalton on Sunday, Oct. 8, at 4 p.m.

The Jericho Brass, a traditional British-style brass band, has been providing brass music in Chattanooga and surrounding communities since 1998.  An all-volunteer ensemble, Jericho Brass is made up of professional and college trained musicians from the Tri-State area. The Jericho Brass performs marches, orchestral transcriptions, popular tunes, hymns and sacred selections, as well as patriotic favorites.  

Participants of the Deep South (Georgia) Brass Band and two Ashland (Kentucky) Brass Band Festivals, the Jericho Brass has also performed concerts in Memphis; Abingdon, Va.; Greenville, S.C.; Charleston, W.V.; Atlanta, and many venues in North Georgia and Alabama.  The Band has also made two concert tours to England, performing in Dubcross, Brighouse, Elland, Oxford, Bournemouth, London, Wigston, and Dublin, Ireland.     

More recently, the band is a 2010 winner of the “George Washington Medal” awarded by the Freedoms Foundation in Valley Forge, Pa. from a presentation in 2010 of an original patriotic composition “Defenders of Liberty” by band members, Dan Hanson, Skip Houck and Tracy Street. 

The concert will benefit the DEO Clinic, which just began its 13th year of service to the community. With over 70 medical and non medical volunteers, the clinic is able to provide free medical services to qualifying low income uninsured residents of the Whitfield - Murray community.  

The tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Advance tickets are recommended as seating is limited. Tickets for the event will be available in advance at the Dalton Freight Depot Gift Shop, Bigham Music, Southern Accessories and Accents, and Clark, Davies, Easley & Pool Insurance.
