On Wednesday, November 2nd, our students were treated to a musical journal filled with comedy and great music. Metales M5 MEXICAN BRASS unites classical and world music, contemporary repertoire and pops arrangements in programs that range through the brass literature and beyond. These five young musicians break the barriers of musical genres as they take the Blues to the Opera and Bach to the roads of Michoacán.
Metales showed our kids how brass instruments work by playing a garden hose They answered questions like “Why does a piccolo trumpet sound so high” and “What is the difference between a Canon and a Fugue” and “Why does German folk music does sound so Mexican”…? Musicians played a trumpet, tuba, French horn and trombone and many other instruments as well as spent time talking to students in between the assembly.
