The public is invited to the Redmond Library on December 8th from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. for a performance by the Cascade Brass Quintet.

“We play everything,” states Tom Barber, who does duty as the group’s tuba player, “from Baroque to Dixieland.” The Redmond performance will feature mostly holiday favorites guaranteed to get visitors in the spirit! You might also hear movie soundtrack tunes or an old standby by Mozart.

“Traditionally, brass quintets consist of a tuba, two trumpets, a French horn and a trombone and are popular for the bold and distinctive way the five horns blend together,” says Barber. Barber, a retired music teacher is joined by computer engineer Doug Pike, who plays the French Horn, Bruce Emerson, trombone player and physics teacher, retired environmental engineer and trumpet player, Bob Schmek and music teacher and trumpet player, Greg Byers.

This program is free and open to the public
