Public ticket prices are as follows:


Adults: $12.00
Over 62 and students: $10.00
GISD Students: $5.00 with identification

Information about the performers:


Baylor Brass brings a wealth of experience to its performances and educational clinics.  Comprised of the Baylor University brass faculty, the group concertizes regularly on the Baylor campus, in the public schools throughout Texas, and on tours of the major music schools outside Texas and to foreign countries.  Baylor Brass members have impressive credentials as chamber music performers, clinicians, and instrumental coaches.  This directly benefits the students at Baylor through chamber music classes and activities of the individual brass studios that are overseen and coached personally by members of Baylor Brass.  They believe that the playing abilities, collaborative skills, and musical awareness developed in rehearsing and performing chamber music equips Baylor’s students to be more effective in large ensembles and as professional performers or educators.
