Philadelphia Youth Orchestra’s Bravo Brass ensemble will proudly perform at their 15th Annual Festival Concert on Saturday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m. The performance will take place in the beautiful St. Mark’s Church, 1625 Locust Street in Philadelphia, PA.  Entitled Brass by Popular Demand, the program of music by John Williams, Mozart, Bernstein, Grieg, Gabrieli, Holst, and Wagner was selected based on responses to a public survey posted during the month of February.  The concert will also feature three soloists—current Bravo Brass trumpeter Erik Larson, trombone alumnus Jason Stein, and Bravo Brass bass trombone faculty member and associate conductor Barry McCommon.

Bravo Brass is an all brass ensemble for promising middle and high-school instrumentalists directed and conducted by Paul Bryan, who is the Dean at Curtis Institute of Music. The Bravo Brass musicians have spent a great amount of time preparing for this performance. Bryan is proud of the students’ commitment to the music and said, “The ensemble has been diligent at practicing and rehearsing for this concert. I am very confident in this group of young musicians and look forward to their performance on June 2nd.”

General admission for this event is $15. Students under 18 are free. For more information, please call (215) 545-0502.
