Ad Hoc Brass Octet to perform at Brown Bag

-A A +A

Free > Noon, May 1 at Fuller Lodge

By The Staff

The Fuller Lodge hosts a series of Brown Bag Performance Series at noon on the first Wednesday of every month. The free shows present a wide range of programs, from Beethoven to ballet, opera to jazz, chamber music to bagpipes, that have been entertaining Los Alamos music lovers on their midday breaks since 1973. Brown Bag Performances connect performers to the community.  This next month will feature the Ad Hoc Brass Octet.
There are two brass quintets playing regularly in town: High Mesa and Brave New Brass. The two combined forces to play some large ensemble music, something which is hard to accomplish because of the difficulty of coordinating and getting 10 people to agree on a rehearsal and performance schedule. They ended up with four players from one quintet and three from the other, plus one agreeable sub, to give them a combination of eight players. There is a vast collection of Gabrieli double-choirs and other large-group pieces to choose from. The Gabrieli pieces represent the height of polyphonic music from the Renaissance era, and the pieces chosen to showcase that style. They include other Renaissance-era music by composers of that period, such as Bach, Susato and Boismortier. Ad Hoc Brass Octet consists of the following eight players.
