Scenes in Brass

In-Person Performance

Scenes in Brass focuses on repertoire that encourages audience members to use their imaginations as we take them on a journey of scenic imagery and personal emotions. The programme includes music depicting a variety of scenes such as an intense descent down an erupting volcano, a peaceful drive through winding forest valleys, a dark and moody jazz club, an exciting cross-country train voyage, and a lively Parisian street party! Hogtown’s shows are designed to break down preconceived notions of how we should attend and participate in musical performances, particularly within the culture of stuffy Classical concerts. Audiences are encouraged to applaud when they feel like it, to clap along with jazz and Latin tunes, and to be engaged, rather than passive listeners.
