Live music by talented local musicians in the Fort Bend Brass Quintet will be featured at Fort Bend County Libraries’ Missouri City Branch Library on Saturday, April 15, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library.

In recognition of Jazz Appreciation Month, the group will perform a number of pieces in the genre of jazz and swing music. They will also share some of the history and culture of this uniquely American soulful art form. 

Reminisce with old favorites like Duke Ellington’s It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing or the Music of Cole Porter Suite. Sway to the mellow sounds of It’s Been a Long, Long Time, by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne, or New York, New York. They will also play crowd favorites such as Happy Trails to You, Amazing Grace, and more.

The quintet features two trumpets, a French horn, a trombone, and a tuba. Between them, the musicians have more than 100 years of combined musical experience, including performing with the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra.    

The performance is free and open to the public.
