Resonance Brass Choir to bring top musicians to the Clarion

Mon Feb 17, 2014

The Resonance Brass Choir, an ensemble comprised of university professors and top performing artists from across Texas, will be performing at The Clarion at Brazosport College at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28. The performance is free to the public.

The Resonance Brass Choir is a 10-piece brass ensemble in the tradition of the great Philip Jones Brass. The ensemble performs under the artistic direction of renowned conductor Stefan Sanders and presents diverse programs featuring music ranging from classical standards to popular styles. 

The members of Resonance have performed in top orchestras and chamber groups across North America, and bring their experience and expertise directly to the next generation of brass performers through dynamic and innovative teaching.  The mission of Resonance is to promote and disseminate the highest levels of brasswind artistry through both performance and music education.

Works in the program range from the high energy, percussive "El Congo Valiente" and "Los Suerte De Los Tontos" from Kenton's Cuban Fire album, to the traditional English brass band favorite, "Moorside Suite," by Gustav Holist, to a cinematic overture by pop icon Bjork.
