ATHENS, WV -

Promising "an evening of great music and boisterous fun," Boston Brass takes the stage at Concord University at 7 p.m. Dec. 3 in the main auditorium of the Fine Arts Center on the Athens campus.

Boston Brass combines classical arrangements, jazz standards and the best of the original brass quintet repertoire to offer a performance that appeals to all ages. The group's philosophy is to offer audiences a wide selection of musical styles in unique arrangements.
      
Performing for nearly three decades, Boston Brass has appeared in 49 states and 30 countries. The group has conducted master classes around the world and helped raise over $100,000 for VH1's Save the Music program giving musical instruments to schools in need.
