On March 1st, our students had the opportunity of a lifetime to perform with The Dallas Brass. 

The Dallas Brass is a brass quintet started by Michael Levine in 1983. Its repertoire contains patriotic, classical, and romantic music, among others. The music ensemble continues to inspire and motivate young musicians and entertains its audience with music and comedy.

The Dallas Brass has performed for Presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush. The group has performed with Cincinnati Pops, New York Pops, and has made appearances at Carnegie Hall and around Europe. The Dallas Brass frequently travels to public schools to present clinics to students as well as work with them on selections of music. 

Kinsey Ward, senior trumpet player at BHS said that the experience was amazing, and she enjoyed the concert! Brooklyn Wade said that she really enjoyed listening to them perform. 

This was an amazing opportunity for our students and our program. Mr. Sewell said that he believes this is the most excited he has seen the students. He went on to give a special shoutout to all the sponsors that helped make this event possible!
