Brass quintet invites audience to join in

Written by 

The Smoky Mountain Brass Quintet takes the stage 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 23, for the weekly Concerts on the Creek series in downtown Sylva, and the group encourages other brass musicians to join the fun.

Brass players of all ages are invited to bring their instruments to Sylva’s Bridge Park and play along with the quintet on two songs. The selections will be played just after intermission, and the music for the songs is available for download at: www.smbq.org/music/music.html.

“If you’re in the Sylva area, dust off your instrument cases, oil your valves and slides, and come join us,” said trumpet player David Ginn.

The Smoky Mountain Brass Quintet is a popular group that serves as quintet in residence at Western Carolina University. The quintet has performed nationally in such venues as Carnegie Hall, as well as internationally with tours of Russia, the United Kingdom and China. Their unique music ranges from early renaissance to rock.

In addition to Ginn, the band consists of Brad Ulrich on trumpet, Dan Cherry on trombone, Mike Schallock on tuba and Travis Bennett on French horn.

This free show is part of a summer concert series each Friday evening through Labor Day weekend.

Concerts on the Creek are co-produced by: the Town of Sylva, Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, Jackson County Parks & Recreation, Downtown Sylva Association, and Jackson Country Travel & Tourism.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceIt’s not only a time capsule, but also a window into the future.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
