The Boston Brass will perform in concert at Syracuse University’s Hendricks Chapel on Sunday, Feb. 8, as part of the Esther Drake and John Vincent Malmgren Concert Series.
The concert will begin at 4 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Irving Garage and in the University’s West lots.
For this performance, the quintet will perform selections by Giovanni Gabrieli, Franz Liszt, Dizzy Gillespie, Pee Wee Ellis, Duke Ellington and Juan Tizol, both alone and accompanied by Syracuse University Organist Kola Owolabi.
From exciting classical arrangements to breathtaking vocal harmony to burning jazz standards, the Boston Brass achieves new levels in brass performance while treating audiences to a unique musical experience. The quintet performs more than 100 concerts annually around the world and has conducted master classes at colleges and universities around the country, including SU. The quintet is Jeff Conner (trumpet), Andrew Hitz (tuba), Lance LaDuke (trombone/euphonium), J.D. Shaw (French horn) and Jose Sibaja (trumpet).
The concert is part of the Malmgren Concert Series at Hendricks Chapel. The series was made possible by a generous gift to Hendricks Chapel from alumna Esther Malmgren ’42 in 1991. The free Sunday afternoon concerts, held throughout the year, feature a wide variety of music.
Other scheduled performances in the 2008-09 Malmgren season are a Rising Star Recital featuring organist Aaron Tan (March 22) and the Hendricks Chapel Choir’s 2009 Spring Concert (April 19).
