ABAC Performance Series Presents Dallas Brass on March 8

February 25, 2016

The Dallas Brass will perform at 7 p.m. on March 8 at the Tift County High School Performing Arts Center as part of the 2016 ABAC Presents! Performing Arts Series.

ABAC Arts Connection Director Wayne Jones said that since its founding in 1983, the Dallas Brass has become one of America’s foremost musical ensembles.  Michael Levine established the group which highlights a unique blend of traditional brass instruments with a full complement of drums and percussion.

The Dallas Brass program is a musical journey through American history and includes pieces from the time of George Washington to the present day.  From compositions by John Phillip Sousa to John Williams, bands like The Tijuana Brass and Chicago, and the styles of Dixieland, Broadway, and hip-hop – the Dallas Brass has something for everyone.  The ABAC Concert Band and the Tift County High School Band will join Dallas Brass in the final number of the evening.

The ABAC performing arts series winds up on April 21 at 7 p.m. in Howard Auditorium at ABAC when saxophonist Greg Tardy will perform with the ABAC Jazz Ensemble.

If any tickets are available, they will be sold at the door for each of the two remaining events in the series.  Jones encourages advance purchase of tickets to ensure seating for patrons.  Individual tickets for each event are $15 for adults and $10 each for students under 18 years of age. Tickets can be purchased online at www.purplepass.com/abac or by phone at (229) 391-4895.

Jones said the Dallas Brass concert is provided through the support of Hilton Garden Inn – Tifton and through a grant from the Fox Theatre Institute and Georgia Presenters.  ABAC Presents! is supported in part by Georgia Council for the Arts through the appropriations of the Georgia General Assembly. Georgia Council for the Arts also receives support from its partner agency – the National Endowment for the Arts.
