Presidio Brass @ Marion Palace Theatre
Jan 12 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Since forming in 2006, PRESIDIO BRASS has rocketed to success as the face of a bold new generation in brass entertainment. By combining a brass quintet, piano and percussion instruments with fresh, original arrangements, their unique sound has become a trademark for the ensemble from San Diego, CA, captivating audiences the world over.

Through their touring show of Hollywood’s greatest hits, Sounds of the Cinema, these five young men present film music with a good dose of wit and humor that together have become hallmarks of every Presidio Brass performance.

Each member of the ensemble began his music career by joining his school’s band program. Inspired by the dedication of their school music teachers, Presidio Brass came together with the primary mission to promote music education and music appreciation in youngsters. This is why at every opportunity, performances are coupled with a master class or school program. Marion area students will have the wonderful opportunity to share in this experience!

Audiences and music critics agree: Sounds of the Cinema is “Two Thumbs Up”, a “Must See!”
