Southern Adventist University welcomes the community to experience an evening of brass as the St. Louis Brass performs on March 15 at 7 p.m. in Iles P.E. Center.

The group will feature selections from the composer Astor Piazolla, including “Libertango” and a new jazz medley titled “Tribute to Pops,” along with popular favorites such as “Animal Ditties” by Anthony Plog and “St. Louis Blues.” The variation of arrangements work together to showcase the group’s musical ability, and their humorous demonstrations underscore their reputation as an extraordinary quintet, said officials. 

“We have a lot of fun with the audience,“ said trombonist Melvyn Jernigan. “It starts off kind of straight and then gets lighter as we go along.”

Founded in 1964, the Saint Louis Brass was originally formed by members of the St. Louis Symphony to play children’s concerts. Now, 40 years later and after more than 2,500 engagements, the quintet group performs several concert tours across the United States and internationally each year.

Admission for the concert will be $5 per person or free with a valid Southern ID. For more information, call 236-2814.
