The Old North State Brass Band, made up of brass and percussion players, has a performance coming up on Friday, May 18th.  The show will be from 7 pm to 8:30 pm and is free and open to the public.  Where will this great musical display take place, you ask?  At the Sertoma Amphitheatre at Bond Park as part of the Sertoma Series.  They have been playing together for two years, and are called a “chamber brass” group.  Their playing selection offers pieces from the swing era, marches, solos by ensemble members, and novely numbers.  I hope that you are able to make it out to this once in a lifetime performance!  Bring the whole family to experience something fun and new.
