Australian Quintet Best of Brass set to entertain families in Hong Kong (press release)
Larger Than Life Quintet ‘Best of Brass’
Set To Entertain Families in Hong Kong
Sunday May 13th, 2018 at Sha Tin Town Hall, 4pm
The Family Concert is sponsored by the Prudential Hotel.
There will also be a Community Concert on May 15 sponsored by Hongkong Land.
Famous for their dynamic, larger than life performances, Best of Brass is set to entertain listeners with a fun-filled and exciting performance.
There’s nothing like the sound of five brass instruments to get an audience to sit up and take notice. With trumpets, trombones and a French Horn, Best of Brass play music written by composers from across the world: tango legends, Australian waltzes, classical masters and Kazakh folk music. The quintet is also expert at explaining where the strange, bendy metal tubes they play come from, and how they work. The programme will be in English with Cantonese interpretation.
This is an entertaining family event cross over with all the elements of professional performance plus a music lesson. Both educational and very enjoyable indeed!”Mr Peter Yu, CFO of Prudential Hotel

The music was exciting and performed well; the prep work is brilliant; the guys were funny and entertaining.”
