Through their touring show of Hollywood’s greatest hits, “Sounds of the Cinema,” these five young men present film music with a good dose of wit and humor that together have become hallmarks of every Presidio Brass performance. Audiences and music critics give a unanimous two thumbs up to “Sounds of the Cinema.”
Formed in 2006, Presidio Brass has rocketed to success as the face of a bold new generation in brass entertainment. By combining a brass quintet, piano and percussion instruments with fresh, original arrangements, the unique sound has become a trademark for the ensemble from San Diego, Calif., captivating audiences everywhere they go. In 2013, they signed a sponsorship deal with Yamaha, making them an official Yamaha Performing Ensemble.
The show has been enjoyed internationally, with performances and educational outreach programs throughout North America. Presidio Brass has performed in more than 40 states, conducted master classes at colleges and universities and been featured on National Public Radio. Inspired by the dedication of their own school music teachers, Presidio Brass came together with the primary mission to promote music education and music appreciation in youngsters.
Members of Presidio Brass have performed with major symphony orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Pacific Symphony and San Diego Symphony, and have shared the stage with commercial and pop artists that include Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, Quincy Jones and more.
The Presidio Brass has released four recordings: “Stolen Moments,” a collection of popular classical and jazz selections; “Christmas Day,” an assortment of well-loved holiday favorites; “Sounds of the Cinema,” which includes pieces from their signature stage performance of the same name; and their newest release “Rhapsody in Brass,” featuring popular American music influenced by classical and jazz idioms.
