Recommended for grades 3rd – 5th

Classical Brass Quintet Buzz Brass performs The History of Music, a fabulous theatrical odyssey that travels through space and time at a thrilling tempo to explore the music of the Western world from pre-historic times to the present day. The show is bursting with energy and combines astounding originality with extraordinary musicianship along with a brassy humor all its own. In The History of Music, an actor helps create the complicity between Buzz’s five musicians and the audience. From the outset to the very end, all find themselves captivated by the rich and colorful theatrical staging that is perfectly integrated with the music. And everything is entirely performed from memory—no music stands in sight to hinder the spontaneity!
