Named “a visionary ensemble” by The Washington Post, The Barclay Brass takes to the Mason Pond Lawn outdoor stage to perform an “out of this world” concert of classical works and themes from the Star Wars soundtrack. Formed in 2015, The Barclay Brass is comprised of the Washington D.C. area’s top brass musicians from a wide array of musical backgrounds. In addition to serving as musicians in the premier military bands in D.C., many members are also highly sought-after freelance musicians, performing with the Baltimore, Boston, and Cincinnati Symphonies, Empire Brass, National Symphony, and the New York Philharmonic. The first half of the program features Shostakovich’s Festive Overture, Meechan’s Song of Hope, and Crespo’s Bruckner Etude for Low Brass. The second half of the program will delight Hollywood fans with a medley from the Star Wars saga. With trumpets, French horns, trombones, euphonium, and tuba, you will not be able to resist the bright, big brass sounds from The Barclay Brass.
