Summer Music: Midcoast Brass

Jul 12, 2013
Midcoast Brass Quintet

Camden — The Midcoast Brass Quintet returns to the Camden Amphitheatre for an evening concert Thursday, July 25, at 7 p.m., as part of Camden Public Library’s Summer Music Series. The series is free; bring blankets or chairs for seating. If the weather turns wet, the concert will move indoors.

The series is underwritten by The First. The Quintet recently helped mark the Camden Amphitheatre’s National Historic Landmark status with a performance at the July 13 gala celebration. This concert will include classical, jazz and popular music.

The Midcoast Brass Quintet features Megan Kennedy on trombone, Doug Kennedy on tuba, Carolyn Kanicki on horn and Peter Stuart and Bruce Cole on trumpets. The concert will include three segments. A classical segment will feature composers such as Franz Joseph Hayden, Gabriel Faure, J.J. Mouret, Joseph Fiocco, Johann Sebastian Bach and P.I Tchaikovsky. During the popular and jazz portion of the program, concertgoers will hear composers ranging from Fats Waller to Lew Pollack and Henry Filmore. A third segment of the concert is dedicated to pet owners and animal lovers everywhere with pieces ranging from “Pink Panther” to the “Teddy Bear March” and “The Dog Gone Blues.”
