March e-Notes

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

A longtime favorite of Civic Music audiences, the Empire Brass Quintet returns to the stage of the Ralph Holter Auditorium on Friday, March 8, at 7:30 pm. The Empire Brass enjoys an international reputation as North America’s finest brass ensemble, renowned for its brilliant virtuosity and the diversity of its repertoire, which ranges from Bach to Broadway. They are equally at home with the majestically antiphonal works of Gabrieli and the show-stopping tunes of Richard Rodgers and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Tickets can be purchased online, or by calling the Civic Music Office at 338-1801, or in the lobby of Green Bay West High School the evening of the concert. Auditorium doors open at 7pm.
