The Programs

The Omaha Brass Ensemble (February 4)<p> Great melodies transcend genre: that’s the thesis of the The Omaha Brass Ensemble’s upcoming concert. For this appearance, the group has collected especially earworm-y tunes from a list of composers that runs the gamut from Debussy to Gershwin and from Bach to The Beatles. Throughout the night they’ll aim to provoke smiles of recognition in the audience and finally get that Farmers Insurance jingle out of the trombonist’s head.

The Plymouth Brass (March 9)<p> Organist Tom Trenney will join The Plymouth Brass for a program centered on Chris Hazell’s uplifting From Age to Age. The piece’s title could stand in for the theme of the whole program: the evening traverses many eras with works including Saint-Saëns pupil Eugène Gigout’s 1881 Grand Choeur Dialogue and contemporary American composer Morten Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium. The concert concludes with a trio of connected melodies: first the Hazell, then Bach’s great St. Ann Fugue, and finally a new setting of the hymn from which both pieces drawn inspiration, “O God Our Help in Ages Past.” As the sound of the hymn fills the concert hall, audience members are encouraged to raise their voices in song.<p>
