Bold as Brass - Shrewd Brass Quintet
Shrewd Brass Quintet (SBQ) takes students through an in-depth look at brass instruments, exploring their mechanics and distinctive tone, and their particularly versatile nature. The music spans classical, rock and jazz, and provides opportunities for students to interact in this participatory program. The hour long show is highly engaging and entertaining - the members of SBQ are able to respond and build a rapport with their audience making this an appropriate show for all ages. The SBQ performance places an emphasis on engaging students to participate in music and to develop a curiosity for the instruments and different styles of music. The show includes a feature piece for each instrument in the group: trumpet, horn, trombone and tuba.
The music is created while we watch and listen. Beats recorded music hands down! Students who usually can't sit still sat for an hour with jaws dropped and eyes agog! Even the preps.
