Tributes with The Denver Brass
The Denver Brass is an elite ensemble of musicians that have been recognized in the United States and abroad. The group is known for its sound, original repertoire, recording and amazing concert productions. The group was founded in 1981 by Kathy Brantigan, a tubist that has played professionally with the Central City Opera, Colorado Ballet, The King’s Brass, Aries Brass Quintet and Hudson Valley Philharmonic. Her husband and co-founder is also a tuba player. The Denver Brass have been keeping the arts alive in Denver by providing free shows on YouTube, like their Bagpipes & Brass event last March.
Tribute to American Heroes
The Denver Brass is continuing their series with a new show this month. This show will pay tribute to America's Heroes and those who lost their lives during the pandemic. From nurses and doctors to essential workers, many worked around the clock to keep our families safe from the virus. This show is a celebration of American character and resilience, a thank you for the valiant acts of patriotism and heroism that make America the home of the brave. The performance will be streamed live on YouTube from the Bethany Lutheran Church in Cherry Hills Village.
This virtual series will be completely free to watch and will not require a ticket. As long as your device has an internet connection you will be able to watch it from anywhere. In order to offer their performances for free, the Denver Brass will be accepting tax-deductible contributions via the Denver Brass website. Donations will go towards covering professional musician salaries and all the general operating expenses associated with running the ensemble. The performance will be on May 27, starting at 7:00 PM.
