Wow, this year blew by so fast, we can barely believe it’s September already! Our Final Friday event this month is the perfect opportunity to ring the new season. Join us for discounts, a trip to detention with The Breakfast Club, and a special performance from the Erie Heights Brass Ensemble! We’ve got plenty of fun planned for the whole family, so come on down to Coventry Village on September 24th from 5-9 pm.
The Erie Heights Brass Ensemble, named for the small crossroads community overlooked on the Lake, was formed on a windy day in March of 1999. They perform about thirty concerts a year. These venues have included parks, malls, churches, libraries, etc. for both community and private events. Once or twice a year, the group performs educational concerts in the schools.
The Ensemble is a brass sextet consisting of two trumpets, horn, trombone, euphonium (baritone), and tuba. This configuration adds the euphonium to the standard brass quintet, creating the effect of a small, British-style brass band while darkening the overall sound. The players are professional musicians from northeast Ohio. The Ensemble performs a wide variety of music ranging from baroque and classical to the contemporary and popular including jazz and swing. For several years, thematic programming has been presented along with seasonal music for Christmas and Dixieland for Mardi Gras. Other programs and music for special occasions, such as for a wedding, are also available. If needed, the Ensemble can provide its own sound system.
