The Alderson-Broaddus College Brass Choir will host its 14 annual Brass in the Grass outdoor concert at 3 p.m. April 29 under a performance shelter in the center of the A-B campus, near Burbick Hall.
The public is invited to attend and asked to bring a blanket or folding chair for lawn seating. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be in Wilcox Chapel. Admission is free.
The 88-member performing ensemble will be comprised of the 2011-12 Brass Choir, ensemble alumni and other former members of the group, high school student guests, community members and several professional brass performers from West Virginia and neighboring states.
Selections will include brass ensemble standards as well as folk tunes, jazz tunes and marches - in both small and large ensembles, satisfying every musical taste.
The A-B Brass Choir, under the direction of Timothy DeWitt, professor of music, is just one of many excellent instrumental and vocal ensembles of A-B's Department of Music. One of the college's popular vocal ensembles, The West Virginians, under the direction of Mrs. Lauren Lindsey, also will be featured at this year's BITG concert.
