Swing on down to the historic Marion Palace Theatre to experience a bold new generation of brass entertainment which audience and music critics hail as a “Must see!,” “Two-Thumbs up,” and “Simply magical.”
Since forming in 2006, Presidio Brass has rocketed to success as the face of a bold new generation in brass entertainment. By combining a brass quintet, piano and percussion instruments with fresh, original arrangements, their unique sound has become a trademark for the ensemble from San Diego, CA, captivating audiences the world over.
Through their fan-favorite touring show of Hollywood’s greatest hits, Sounds of the Cinema, these five young men present film music with a good dose of wit and humor that together have become hallmarks of every Presidio Brass performance. Hear unexpected mash-ups from Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, James Bond, Mission: Impossible, The Incredibles, and more! Audiences will also hear classic rock hits such as Bohemian Rhapsody and Irish folk ballad Danny Boy.
Each member of the ensemble began his music career by joining his school’s band program. Inspired by the dedication of their school music teachers, Presidio Brass came together with the primary mission to promote music education and music appreciation in youngsters. This is why at every opportunity, performances are coupled with a master class or school program. Marion area students will have the wonderful opportunity to share in this experience!
