Saint Louis Brass performance is second in year-long Presidential Performing and Visual Arts Series

The Saint Louis Brass will bring their trademark classical and jazz sounds to Texas A&M University-Kingsville at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13 in Jones Auditorium as part of the Presidential Performing and Visual Arts Series.

The performance is free for students with a valid student identification card and $8 for the general public, who also have the option of purchasing tickets to the remaining four performances in the Presidential Performing and Visual Arts Series for $20.

This presentation is supported by Mid-America Arts Alliance with generous underwriting by the National Endowment for the Arts, and foundations, corporations and individuals throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas.

One of the longest-standing quintets in the nation, the Saint Louis Brass includes two trumpets, one French Horn, a trombone and a tuba. Founded in 1964, the group has performed at more than 2,700 engagements and performs average 40 engagements a year, including workshops, clinics and formal concerts.

From jazz to classic standards to tangos, The Saint Louis Brass bring a relaxed and informal approach to their performances, infusing each with grace, professionalism and a sense of showmanship. The group also works in some laughs with light-hearted demonstrations.

Members of the group include Allan Dean, from Yale University; Ray Sasaki from the University of Texas; Thomas Bacon from the Houston Ballet; Daniel Perantoni from the University of Indiana and Melvyn Jernigan, formerly with the Saint Louis Symphony.

The Presidential Performing and Visual Arts Series is a year-long program of art, music and theatre performances that bring culture and variety to Kingsville for faculty, staff, students and community audiences. The intention is to bring a new element to learning outside the classroom for students as they are entertained and educated in venues they might not normally visit. Community members are welcome to continue life-long learning by attending these events and interacting with our students. For more information, call 593-2769.
