Downeast Brass to perform May 3
The Downeast Brass will be preforming in Farmington at the North Church on Thursday, May 3 at 7:00 PM. The North Church is located at 118 High Street. Doors open at 6 PM for a ‘Pie Social’ and Jam Session. Anyone interested in joining the Jam Session need only bring his or her instrument. Children participating will get free admission to the performance.
The Downeast Brass has performed in many New England settings. Audiences have been impressed by these fine Maine performers on the concert stage, at weddings, festivals, and on parade.
They have performed at private parties at the Governor's mansion in Augusta, Maine, at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, the famous Moxie Parade, and Governor Baldacci's inauguration ceremony, among many other appearances. Their wide range of musical styles makes them the preferred musical choice for many occasions.
The Downeast Brass's founder and arranger, Dwight Tibbetts, has kept the unique talents and skills of his colleagues in mind as he has arranged music specifically for the group. From Andy Forster's pristine high trumpet tones to Mark Mumme's full bass sonority, Mike Peterson’s trombone, and Loren Field’s french horn the Downeast Brass combines the skills of some of Maine's premier musicians. Since they are also music educators, they seek to reach audiences of all ages with original and entertaining programming.
Show tickets are $15 for the general population, $10 for High School and College Students, $5 for elementary students. Preschoolers as well as any student participating in the Jam Session are free.
