WILLARD — The Seneca Falls Brass Quintet will perform for the next concert of the Lake Country Hometown Music Series at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 7 in the sanctuary of Christ Episcopal Church, 1392 Main St.
The concert will feature a range of musical pieces from the traditional/classical Moruet’s Roundeau to Broadway tunes such as “Oh What a Beautiful Morning,” standards like Alexander’s “Ragtime Band” and the Beatles’ “When I’m 64.” The concert is free, supported by a grant from the Delavan Foundation. It will be followed by a reception in the Parish Hall.
The Seneca Falls Brass Quintet has been entertaining audiences for over 20 years. The current group comprises Andy Stobie and Janelle Bradshaw (trumpet), Claire Damaske (French horn), Wendy Kain (trombone) and John Lash (tuba). In addition to playing with the quintet, these musicians are also active members of many other area groups, including the Seneca Falls Community Band, the Hobart & William Smith Community Wind Ensemble, Auburn Chamber Orchestra, Finger Lakes Symphony Orchestra, Andy Stobie & the Greater Finger Lakes Jazz Orchestra and the Clyde Saxton Firemans Band. For its repertoire, the quintet draws from these diverse musical experiences, and will perform an entertaining selection of classical, sacred, traditional, Broadway/Hollywood, pop and jazz tunes.
