CLASSICAL | Brass without Boundaries


Brass instruments usually don't get much chance to shine on a chamber-music program, other than the occasional Hindemith sonata or (if you're a trumpeter) the Saint-Saëns Sextet. The First Unitarian Church will rectify this with the first concert of the season in its chamber-music series, First Muse. The shining will be done by a trio of Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra brass players: assistant principal horn Byron Johns, principal trombone Mark Kellogg on euphonium, and tuba player Craig Sutherland. They'll be joined by pianist Joseph Werner for music by Corelli, Schumann, and Canadian composer Barbara York, and a premiere by yet another RPO musician: a trio for euphonium, horn, and tuba by principal trumpet Wesley Nance.

First Muse Chamber Music presents "Brass without Boundaries" Sunday, September 29, 7:30 p.m. at First Unitarian Church, 220 Winton Road South. $10 general, $5 student, $20 family.
