What a wonderful show. They played at a local high school. Their focus was on playing music from throughout American history. Lots of folk music and stuff from the 1800s, but a lot of more recent stuff including Benny Goodman and Herb Alpert as well.
They did clinics with the high school and middle school earlier in the day and brought each band up to play a song. The kids were definitely doing the best they could and actually ended up sounding a lot better than school bands around here usually do.
The Dallas Brass made a show out of the evening, with lots of playing and a bit of humor between tunes.
Not that I expected any less, they were excellent.
