River City Brass’s Gershwin & Friends
For their latest concert, River City Brass will dive into the timeless music of brothers George and Ira Gershwin, plus a few of their contemporaries. Needless to say, their era—primarily the ’20s and ’30s—was a good one for music. For it was then that Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Harold Arlen, Maurice Ravel, and, of course, the Gershwins all wrote some of their most memorable compositions. Specific selections have yet to be announced, but expect anything from “Someone to Watch Over Me” to “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore.”
River City Brass
Founded in hopes of bringing about a revival of the American brass band, River City Brass aims to share the uniquely joyous art form with audiences across Pennsylvania. And for the past 30-odd years, the group has done just that. River City Brass’s 28-piece ensemble—some of whom have been members since the early ’80s—play more than 50 concerts annually. Their programs span continents and centuries, with every performance bringing a new showcase of styles. Modern music, classical pieces, big-band jazz, and show tunes have all passed through RCB’s bright cornets, chortling tubas, and crisp percussion.
