The UW-Platteville Center for the Arts Performing Arts Series will present the exceptional musicianship of Burning River Brass on April 16 at 8 p.m. Composed of 12 of the country's finest brass and percussion players, Burning River Brass is an ensemble on fire! The expanded instrumentation provides a broad palette of colors for works written for brass as well as fresh arrangements of classic literature.

Quickly becoming the most respected brass ensemble in the United States, Burning River Brass has been dazzling audiences since 1996 with "power and virtuosity," "harmonious blend," and "consistently stirring performances." Members of BRB have appeared with The Cleveland Orchestra, the Boston Symphony, the Boston Pops, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Cincinnati Symphony, and the Pittsburgh Symphony. They can also be heard on movie soundtracks, commercial recordings, television and radio.

On the same evening of this performance, a pre-show dinner will be served in the Ullsvik Center at 6 p.m. During the meal, diners will get the first look at the events planned for the 2003-04 Performing Arts Series. All dinner tickets are $12 and must be reserved three days in advance.

Following the dinner, a pre-show conversation will be held with a member of the ensemble at 7 p.m. in the CFA. The pre-show discussion is free and open to the public.

Reserved seats for Burning River Brass are $20 for general public, $18 for UWP faculty/staff and senior citizens, $10 for UWP students and $12 for children under 18. Tickets for Burning River Brass are available through the University Box Office in the Center for the Arts.
