Susquehanna University presents Septura Brass Septet
February 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$5 – $20
Septura Brass Septet aims to re-cast the brass ensemble as a serious artistic medium by creating a canon of transcriptions, arrangements, and new commissions for this brand new classical configuration. Currently Ensemble in Residence at the Royal Academy of Music, the group is recording a series of discs, each focused on a particular period, genre, and set of composers, creating a “counter-factual history” of brass chamber music. Weaving this ever-increasing repertoire into captivating live events, Septura is gaining a reputation for engaging audiences with innovative and imaginative programming. Septura’s members are the leading players of the new generation of British brass musicians, holding principal positions in the London Symphony, Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, Basel Symphony, and Aurora orchestras.
Tickets are $20 for Adults, $15 for Seniors, $5 for Students and can be purchased by calling 570-372-ARTS(2787), Monday through Friday, 12pm-5pm, or visiting the Degenstein Center box office. Discounts are available for groups of 15 or more.
