For an evening of fun with brass, come see, hear and enjoy the Saint Louis Brass at Northwestern Oklahoma State University on Monday, Nov. 7, at 7:30 p.m. in Herod Hall Auditorium.

Season tickets are still available at Holder Drug, Schuhmacher’s, and the NWOSU Bookstore or by calling (580) 327-8692. Adult season tickets are $40 and student season tickets are $20. Tickets to individual performances will be sold on an “as available” basis at $15 for adults and $10 for students.

The Saint Louis Brass will perform a great variety of selections featuring music from their CD "Pops Music of the Americas" and from several other CDs, plus their new DVD.

Although the members of the Saint Louis Brass look formal when they perform, audiences are pleasantly surprised at the relaxed and informal atmosphere they create. With extraordinary grace, the ensemble transforms the stuffiness associated with classical chamber music, combining professionalism and showmanship to produce a thoroughly enjoyable musical experience.

Since 1964, the Saint Louis Brass has been performing throughout the country and continues to thrive as a top-notch ensemble. Members of the group include trumpet players Allan Dean from Yale University and Ray Sasaki from the University of Texas. Thomas Bacon is a sought after soloist and clinician. Melvyn Jernigan, formerly with the Saint Louis Symphony, plays trombone, and the tubist is Indiana University's Daniel Perantoni. Several of the members are well-known as soloists and clinicians and also perform with Summit Brass.

The Northwest Oklahoma Concert Series is supported by the Oklahoma Arts Council, the Charles Morton Share Trust, the Mid-America Arts Alliance and the National Endowment for the Arts.
