Puget Brass!!

The bold sounds of Puget Brass definitely encourage the use of exclamation points! (!)

This Is Not A Trumpet, It Is A Cornet

On Sunday, March 17th at 2 p.m., Puget Sound’s premier British style brass band, Puget Brass, will blow out the dreary winter days with a Spring concert for the whole family at the Redmond Library. You will be regaled by marches and soothed by symphonies, all played in the unique and entertaining style popularized by British colliery* bands of the early 20th century.

Hope to see you there – come early to grab a good seat!


*colliery = coal mine and associated buildings
If you want to study up before you hear the music, consider renting the movie Brassed Off, which inspired the creation of Puget Brass.  If you still own a VCR, borrow it from the library!  Otherwise, Netflix also has available in their streaming collection.
