The Rocky Mountain Brassworks, a British style brass band centered in the metro area, again presents our annual celebration of all things Celtic in - “Celtic Explosion”.
This terrific ensemble of 30 brass players and 4 percussionists will thrill you, the audience, with wonderful music from the British Isles and beyond. You’ll hear terrific music like “Amazing Grace”, and “Highland Cathedral” along with some new music that will tell the tale of the people from Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and England.
To help with the story telling will be a fantastic video presentation to make the music come alive. You’ll be able to see pictures from the British Isles and beyond as you listen to the wonderful music prepared by the brass band. You’ll also be thrilled with the terrific story telling with our emcee explaining things about the music.
Another spectacular feature of this concert will be the presentation of the pipers from the El Jebel Pipe Band. These 9 pipers and drummers bring the excitement of the pipes to the stage and, with the band, present some fabulous music such as “Sterling Of Kier” and “Bays of Harris”. The pipers will also present some terrific solo music and will play during intermission in the lobby.
