UCO ENSEMBLE GIVES THE ‘BRASS’ TREATMENT TO AN ECLECTIC MIX OF ROCK, CLASSICAL AND OTHER FAVORITES FEB. 11

The University of Central Oklahoma School of Music presents the Red Bud Brass Ensemble in concert at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 11 at the UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E. Fifth Street in Edmond.           

This concert is a part of the Faculty Artist Concert Series, a yearlong performance series that highlights the talents of Central music faculty members.  All performances take place on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. at the Jazz Lab with proceeds supporting scholarships and the UCO School of Music.           

The Red Bud Brass Ensemble consists of trumpeter Ryan Sharp, D.M.A., trumpeter Brian Lamb, D.M.A., French horn player Peggy Moran, D.M., trombonist Jeff Kidwell, and bass trombonist Wayne Clark, D.M.A.           

“The Red Bud Brass Ensemble originated from the shared passion my colleagues and I have for music and a good time,” said Sharp.           

According to Sharp, this concert will consist of an eclectic mix of tunes, ranging from 19th century Russian composer Victor Vladimirovich Ewald to “West Side Story” composer Leonard Bernstein to rock legends Steven Tyler and The Beatles.           

“We picked such a broad range of music so we could expose the audience to various genres that sit well with our instruments,” said Sharp.           

Tickets for this Faculty Artist Concert are $10 and can be purchased by calling the UCO School of Music at 405-974-5004.  Admission is free for Central students, faculty and staff with a Central I.D.
