Philadelphia Youth Orchestra Presents YE OLDE BRASS Concert, 3/4
Returning to the beautiful St. Mark's Church in Center City Philadelphia, the talented members of the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra's Bravo Brass ensemble will present a concert titled "Ye Olde Brass" on Saturday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. The concert features music of English Elizabethan composers William Byrd, John Bull, Giles Farnaby, Orlando Gibbons, and others. St. Mark's is located at 1625 Locust St, Philadelphia, PA.
Paul Bryan, dean of faculty and students at the Curtis Institute of Music, is the Director and Conductor of Bravo Brass. In looking forward to this concert, he said, "the members of the ensemble have enjoyed preparing the unique music for this concert. Elizabethan England is often referred to as the English renaissance, and the music of the time was as trend-setting and forward-thinking as the works of another of the period's great artists, William Shakespeare. Performers and audience members alike are sure to enjoy the music of the evening."
