Uptown Brass 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
