Burning River Brass + Pilgrim Congregational Church = WOW!

without comments

Last night, my friend Christine and I attended our first Burning River Brass concert at the incredible Pilgrim Congregational Church.  I have been to other events at the church, but I am sad to say I had never attended a concert presented by Arts Renaissance Tremont until last night .  They have been offering this incredible music for sixteen years, and I haven’t taken advantage of the opportunity.  The acoustics and the space were a perfect meld with the ensemble.  One selection was better than the next! Visit BRB’s website to see the concert schedule.

Burning River Brass began its career right here in Cleveland at the church where they return each year to take part in an incredible event.  The place was filled with others there to hear the music and take part in a holiday celebration.  This brass ensemble started out as a group of friends who enjoyed playing their instruments, and now, is a nationally touring troupe.

If you missed the concert last night, you still have an opportunity to hear Burning River Brass because they are in town all week.   And you also have another opportunity to support another local agency that brings great music at an affordable price to our community–a freewill offering.  Become a member of  Arts Renaissance Tremont and  add it to your list of local organizations you supported this Christmas Season.  

Step back, take a deep breath and find the time to experience a Burning River concert.  It just might be the best present you give yourself this holiday season.
