Brass: American Bandstand Concert

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 5:15pm to 6:15pm

Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library,
121 Wall St.
New Haven, CT 06511

American Bandstand:
A Tribute to the Wind Ensemble

Concert in celebration of the Beinecke Library's 50th Anniversary

Featuring music by Holst, Vaughn Williams, Sousa, Copland, and more.

The wind band is a distinct part of the Anglo-American tradition. From military roots, groups made up entirely of woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments grew to become serious musical ensembles in their own right.

Inspired by the riches of the Beinecke's Americana collection, Brass celebrates this iconic part of the American tradition by presenting some of the music that contributed most to the development of these types of bands.

Free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
