Bring in the brass: Black Mesa quintet
If it’s Friday, you can be sure that First Presbyterian Church (208 Grant Ave.) will be offering a half-hour of music for you to enjoy at its weekly TGIF concert. This week’s performance, which begins at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 8, features the Black Mesa Brass Quintet. The group offers works by English Renaissance composer Anthony Holborne, opera all-star Georges Bizet (a suite from his
Carmen), and jazz luminary Dizzy Gillespie (among others), in arrangements for an ensemble of two trumpets, horn, trombone, and tuba. The doors are open to all, with donations appreciated. For information, call 505-982-8544, Ext. 16. — J.M.K.
