The Classic Brass Trio will take you on a musical journey though the sounds of Texas. Our show will cover a diverse range of musical styles including blues, gospel, ragtime, jazz, Tejano, and rock and roll. Texas music reflects our rich history and great cultural diversity. As we explore this marvelous heritage we will demonstrate the different musical styles and explain how they developed through the late 1800's to the present. Program delivery is adjusted based on age groups. Educational content is expanded in older grades
