The brass quintet Saxony-Anhalt performed this evening (1/8/11) at St Louis Church in Clarksville, Maryland and they were EXCELLENT! My son Travis & I attended and it was a blast!
A wide range of pieces from Wagner to Vincent Gover. Vincent who, you ask? Vincent Gover is a 17 year old senior at River Hill who composed the Childrens Suite and the world premiere was tonight at St Louis.
Other pieces included Jean Joseph Mouret (Romdeau- famous as the theme to Masterpiece Theatre), Henry Mancini, Johann Strauss and others, classic and modern.
They will be playing at
Emmanuel United Methodist Church (Laurel, MD)- 1/9/11, 3 PM
Abiding Savior Lutheran Church (Columbia, MD) 1/11/11, 7 PM
and at the Kennedy Center 1/12/11 at 6 PM
It is a great 90 minutes of brass. Attend & enjoy!
