Brass Spectacular with the St. Louis Symphony Brass

Tuesday, February 7, 2012 8:00pm390px-Trumpets02262006

Hearing the Saint Louis Symphony Brass Section in the sonic splendor of the Cathedral Basilica will be an unbelievable treat. In combination with the 7621 pipes of the great Cathedral Organ, it will be an experience of astonishing proportions.

The evening’s program will include everything from music for solo trumpet and organ to music for multiple brass choirs heard around the cathedral.

Cathedral Concerts is honored to partner with our city’s Symphony players in this unique presentation.

Brass players selected to the Missouri High School All-State Band will have the incredible opportunity of studying with members of The Saint Louis Symphony Brass in master class settings during the day of the concert and then will join them on stage for a portion of the concert.
