The Gila Valley Arts Council is proud to bring Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass to Safford. The event will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, at the David M. Player Center for the Arts, at 980 S. 14th Ave., Safford.
The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass is composed of some of America’s top brass musicians dedicated to bringing the joyous experience of great music to a wide range of audiences. A veritable “dream team” of virtuoso brass players, associate artists have appeared on the world’s most prominent stages and performed with such groups as the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Baltimore Symphony, the Paolo State Symphony Orchestra, the Imani Winds, Canadian Brass, Empire Brass, Dallas Brass and Boston Brass.
The group burst onto the music scene with a debut performance in Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center in Verizon Hall, a residency for the Mann Center
for the Performing Arts, and a special feature on the National Public Radio show, “All Things Considered.”
