|Members of Steptoe Brass include Jim Kulpa, Bruce Burgess, Barry Sudduth, Brian Thacker and Michelle Lybarger.|
On Sunday, March 22, “The Steptoe Brass” will be presenting its debut concert at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Kilmarnock. The ensemble of five brass musicians will perform music for brass quintet covering many different styles. This performance constitutes the first public exhibition of the local group.
The Steptoe Brass formed in 2008 when local brass players expressed a desire to perform brass chamber music. The musicians hail from throughout the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula.
The concert will showcase music by Dukas, Shostakovich, Grainger, Sousa, Waller, Cheetham, Calvert and Rodriguez. The Brass will play standards as “Suite from the Montegerian Hills” and “Scherzo.” It also will play audience favorites like “Ain’t Misbehavin’” and “Danny Boy.”
The concert begins at 2 p.m. Admission is free, but donations to the church are welcomed. For more information about the group, visit http://www.steptoebrass.com or call 804-450-1200.
