The Church of St. John the Divine will once again host the Pinnacle Brass, Victoria’s professional brass quintet, on Tuesday, March 13 at 7:30 p.m.
The show will feature music inspired by motion. The performance will include music by Susato, Bernstein, Stravinsky, Piazzolla and Horovitz to get your toes tapping and lift you out of your seat as the group plays everything from tangos to marches.
The Pinnacle Brass Quintet was formed in 2009 and is made up of John Ellis, Matt McCrady, Mike Oswald, Scott MacInnes and Eugene Dowling, musicians from Vancouver Island’s important musical institutions including the Victoria Symphony, the Vancouver Island Symphony, the Naden Band of Maritime Forces Pacific, and the University of Victoria School of Music.
Last fall the Pinnacle Brass Quintet recorded its first album entitled The Earth Shall Ring! and launched it at a Christmas concert that featured local tenor Ken Lavigne.
The album can now be found at Pinnacle Brass Quintet shows, or on CDBaby, iTunes, and Amazon.
Tickets at the door or in advance for $10 for students and $20 for general admission.
