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.
