Southern Stars Symphonic Brass in Concert Sept. 7

CROSSVILLE — The 30-piece professional ensemble, the Southern Stars Symphonic Brass, kicks off their three concert Crossville series on Saturday, Sept. 7, at 7 p.m. in the outstanding 1200 seat auditorium of Stone Memorial High School in Crossville. This concert is themed as “Brass Go Around the World” and will feature music selections from countries which will showcase a great variety of styles. The concert sponsor is Bed & Biscuit Kennel and tickets may be purchased at Cumberland Eye Care in Fairfield Glade, First National Bank of Tennessee branches in Crossville and Fairfield Glade, Bed & Biscuit Kennel off Peavine Road, and at Cumberland County Playhouse’s box office or website. Adult tickets are $20 and student tickets are $5.

Steven Boyce, of Knoxville, will be appearing as guest vocalist. He is a former native of Crossville and graduate of Cumberland High School. Steve is active in the Knoxville music scene by being a tenor soloist in past performances for the Knoxville Symphony, Knoxville Opera, and Knoxville Choral Society’s concerts. He is cantor for the St. John’s Cathedral, the East Tennessee Diocese Cathedral and owns and operates two Rush’s Music stores in Knoxville that provide school band specialty services for schools all over East Tennessee. You may have heard he and his accompanist giving their “Steve and Jane” performances, as they do numerous concerts in East Tennessee featuring “Old Standards.”

The concert program will feature the following selections: “Festival Celebrations” (USA), composed by SSSB alto horn musician Dr. Greg Danner who is professor of composition at TTU; “ Florentiner March” (Italy); “Bring Him Home” (France) from Les Miserables with vocal by Steven Boyce; “Spiritual Fantasy” (Canada) and “Danny Boy” (Ireland) performed by the band’s principal euphonium artist Brandon Jones; “Aye Waukin’ O” (Scotland) performed by flugelhorn soloist Dwight Wages; selections from “Lord of the Ring, the Fellowship of the Ring” (New Zealand/Middle Earth); “Return to Horsham” (UK); “Embraceable You” (USA) with vocal by Steven Boyce; “Cossack Wedding Dance” (Russia); “Essential Elton John” (UK); “Valdres March” (Norway); and “Steven Foster Medley” (USA). This concert is an easy way to tour the world in the comfort of your seat, and features a wide variety of music that will appeal to all tastes.

“I encourage folks to consider investing in season tickets for the three concerts being presented in Crossville. Besides being entertained by a group of instrumental musicians who pride themselves in ‘Premium Entertainment’ to which their audiences’ testify, your season ticket price of $45 allows you to enjoy their great concerts for the low average price of $15/concert, a savings of $5/concert off the single ticket price of $20. Plus the season ticket comes with an exchange policy that secures your usage of your tickets, and seating in a reserved section,” said Dwight Wages, who is president and founder of the SSSB.

The other concerts are on Sunday, Feb. 16, at 3 p.m. with the theme “March Madness” which will feature outstanding marches and other selections. And the last concert is on Saturday, May 17, at 7 p.m. with the theme “Classics and Jazz,” which will feature Geoff Gallante who is a trumpet/cornet/flugelhorn phenom who is a ripe old 12 years of age. Geoff is from Washington, DC and has appeared on the Jay Leno, NBC and CBS Today shows, the Kennedy Center, the White House, and numerous concert bands across the US. He will be performing classic trumpet repertoire and is outstanding jazz improvisation talent which is mature way beyond his age. “I will guarantee that coming to hear Geoff alone is well worth the price of our season ticket, as he is truly one of the fastest rising talents who you will be admiring in the future,” commented Wages.
