Amy Sanchez, a french horn player and professor at the Herb Alpert School of Music at UCLA, and Miami-based trumpeter Brian Neal join Sitka Fine Arts Camp director Roger Schmidt to discuss the Holiday Brass Concert (7 p.m. Saturday, May 29, Sitka Performing Arts Center). Schmidt has assembled an all-star roster of the nation's best brass players for the show, which will feature classics by American composers Aaron Copland and John Williams.
Among all the hot tickets in Sitka in December, the Holiday Brass remains one of the hottest. The concert is a major fundraiser for the Sitka Fine Arts Camp, and has been at-or-near sellout for the last several years. But it’s not just the fans who are devoted to the show -- the musicians are too.
