Public Radio Music Month http://tpr.org en Minneapolis' Uptown Brass Are Deep In The Heart Of Texas http://tpr.org/post/minneapolis-uptown-brass-are-deep-heart-texas <p></p><p>The <strong>Uptown Brass Quintet</strong> consists of the principal brass players from the Minnesota Orchestra (according to writer/critic Alex Ross as "the greatest orchestra in the world.") This particular ensemble of musicians have been playing over a decade together, and you'll hear it in their comradery and especially in their music making. &nbsp;Typically the group presents community concerts and educational outreach around Minnesota and whereever the orchestra is touring. But since last October, these musicians have been locked out of work.</p> Wed, 10 Apr 2013 16:17:57 +0000 John Clare 9413 at http://tpr.org Minneapolis' Uptown Brass Are Deep In The Heart Of Texas Updated: Last Weekend Of Public Radio Music Month At KPAC! http://tpr.org/post/updated-last-weekend-public-radio-music-month-kpac <p><strong>Update: (April 24 at 2:00 p.m.)</strong> We start the homestretch of Public Radio Music Month with an encore airing of <a href="http://tpr.org/post/hear-5-browns-live-boerne" target="_blank">The Five Browns Live in Boerne</a> on Saturday, April 27&nbsp; at 7 p.m.</p><p>On Sunday, April 28 at noon, David Mairs from the Mid Texas Symphony kicks off a day of guest DJs.</p><p><strong>Sunday's schedule:</strong></p> Mon, 01 Apr 2013 17:33:26 +0000 John Clare 8894 at http://tpr.org Updated: Last Weekend Of Public Radio Music Month At KPAC!
