No foolin’, this will be an evening of great music! The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass is composed of some of America’s top brass musicians, a veritable “dream team” of virtuoso players who have performed with some of the world’s most prominent groups. Their performances range from solo trumpet, to brass quintet, to the full ensemble with percussion, and include a wide range of music and styles. Click here for a video.
“The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass is a quantum leap forward in what a brass group can bring to an audience. It simply is the next big thing.”
– Jens Lindemann, former member of The Canadian Brass
“No one plays absolutely beautifully all the time…unless you’re my cousin Rodney”
– Wynton Marsalis
