You’ll leave this concert humming along with a song in your heart.

“Brass … And All That Jazz” will take everyone on a swingin’ musical journey of American jazz. This signature Legacy Brass Quintet concert program will have “feet a tappin’, thumbs a snappin’ and legs a dancin’” as the ensemble performs a respective of jazz styles from jazz greats Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, The Original Dixieland Band, Hoagy Carmichael, Bix Beiderbeck, Juan Tizol, W.C. Handy, Louis Prima, and many more. From big band swing to smokey ballads, from the streets of New Orleans to the night clubs of New York, this program has it all.
