We last featured the Dallas Brass in 1994. This popular group employs a blend of brass instruments and percussion to offer an extraordinary range of musical experiences. The Brass’s repertoire includes Classical masterpieces, Dixieland, Swing, Broadway, Hollywood, and Americana. The Brass have performed at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, appeared with major symphony orchestras, and toured in Europe and the Far East. The group will also be doing an in-school program for us with a local high school band which will make a guest appearance at our concert.
Singer Sasha Masakowski was born into a family of musicians in New Orleans. A leading jazz voice on the music scene since 2009, she was awarded “Best Emerging Artist” by the Big Easy Association, and Vanity Fair included her on a list of the world’s top jazz musicians of any age. Her influences draw from jazz to electronic music to rock, and her approach to music is as playful, charismatic, and spontaneous as her personality. With her new album "Art Market" Sasha showcases her skills as a vocalist, composer, and bandleader.
