The concert is free to the public and open to all.

It will follow on the heels of the CMU Brass Invitational Conference where high school students from across the state come for clinics with CMU brass instructors. At the end of the day in late afternoon, Boston Brass will provide clinics for conference attendees, as well as master classes for CMU brass instrumentalists.

Students who have come for the day-long CMU Brass Invitational are strongly encouraged to make plans to stay for the 6:30 concert.

The members of Boston Brass include Jose Sibaja, trumpet; Jeff Conner, trumpet; Chris Castellanos, French horn; Domingo Pagliuca, trombone; and Sam Pilafian, tuba.

Boston Brass has been providing one-of-a-kind musical experiences for more than 25 years. They play a wide selection of musical styles, including classical, jazz, fanfares, and original music, enjoyed by all ages. Their concerts are punctuated with lively and humorous repartee. They bridge the gap between classical formality and fun.

The group performs more than 100 performances each year in a variety of venues, including with orchestras, bands, organs, jazz bands, and assorted other ensembles. They have performed all over the world and created multiple albums.

This exceptional program is sponsored by CMU and its Cultural Affairs Committee. It is financed in part by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
