Dallas Brass coming to DL
The Historic Holmes Theatre in Detroit Lakes will present a free performance of the world-renowned ensemble, the Dallas Brass, this Thursday, Feb. 18 at 7 p.m.
Tickets for the performance are free; however, seats must be reserved in advance by calling 218-844-SHOW or visiting the Historic Holmes Theatre Box located at 806 Summit Ave, Detroit Lakes.
The Historic Holmes Theatre was awarded a grant through the Lake Region Arts Council via funding provided by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund to cover the full cost of bringing the Dallas Brass to Detroit Lakes.
The Historic Holmes Theatre received the grant to provide access to the arts for the people of rural Minnesota.
More than 800 people, many of which do not attend theatre performances regularly, will have the opportunity to see the Dallas Brass show for free.
Also, the Dallas Brass will be working with 200 area middle and high school band students in one-on-one and large group rehearsals and clinics during their time in Detroit Lakes.
The students will perform two numbers with them during Thursday's performance.
Since its founding in 1983 by Michael Levine, the Dallas Brass has become one of America's foremost musical ensembles, blending traditional brass instruments with a full complement of drums and percussion.
The Dallas Brass repertoire includes classical masterpieces, Dixieland, swing, Broadway, Hollywood and patriotic music. Visit www.dlccc.org for more info.
