Members of the Gaudete Brass Quintet will explore the process of creating great music in a chamber ensemble setting during a November performance at The Block, in Muskegon.
The GBQ, which is one of the few brass quintets in the world exclusively committed to performing serious brass chamber music, will perform a series of pieces that range from romantic, diverse to monumental in both scope and material. The program starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Sliders will be provided by Hennessey’s Irish Pub & Restaurant.
“Modern. Brassy. Sliders.” is the seventh concert presented at The Block, which is quickly becoming a destination for music lovers with a variety of tastes. West Michigan Symphony unveiled its new performance space in June and has a variety of concerts already scheduled through May 2014 – with more to be added to the calendar.
The evening will feature music from a variety of composers, including Joan Tower’s “Copperwave,” Michael Praetorius’ “Christ Lag in Todesbanden” and Oskar Böhme’s “Trumpet Sextet in Eb minor Op. 30.” The second half of the performance will feature David Sampson’s “Still” and “Songs of War and Loss” by Anthony Plog, with text by Walt Whitman.
Tickets for “Modern. Brassy. Sliders.” range from $28 and up and are available at the West Michigan Symphony ticket office: 231.726.3231 ext. 223; online at; or in person at 360 W. Western Ave. in Muskegon.
