              Presidio Brass: Sounds of the Cinema
         Imperial Theatre — Thursday, October 11 at 7:30 p.m.

 A bold new generation in brass entertainment, Presidio Brass (comprised of brass quintet, piano and percussion)
 shakes up the “stuffy” ensemble repertoire to present an evening of music straight out of Hollywood! Coming to
 Imperial Theatre on Thursday, October 11 at 7:30 p.m., Sounds of the Cinema includes classical music used in
 movies, such as Barber’s Adagio, and also features original music from some of the most popular movies of all time,
 such as Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Fantasia, West Side Story and more!

 Through their touring show of Hollywood’s greatest hits, Sounds of the Cinema, these five young men present film
 music with a good dose of wit and humour that together have become hallmarks of every Presidio Brass
 performance. Audiences and music critics agree, Sounds of the Cinema is “Two Thumbs Up” and a “Must See!”
 The show has been enjoyed internationally, with performances and educational outreach programs throughout North
 America. Presidio Brass has performed in over 40 states, conducted master classes at many of America’s finest
 colleges and universities, and has been featured on National Public Radio.

 Members of Presidio Brass have performed with major symphony orchestras, including the Los Angeles
 Philharmonic, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Pacific Symphony and the San Diego Symphony. In addition to performing as
 a brass quintet, Presidio Brass performs regularly as a part of Millennia Consort, one of the nation’s premiere brass,
 organ and percussion ensembles.

 Presidio Brass has released three recordings: Stolen Moments, a collection of popular classical and jazz selections;
 Christmas Day, an assortment of well-loved holiday favourites; and Sounds of the Cinema, which includes pieces
 from their signature stage performance of the same name. Look for their newest CD of popular American music,
 which will be released in 2013.
