The Andalusia Chamber Music Society (ACMS), an outreach program of the LBW Community College music department, will feature the Four Seasons Brass for the fall 2016 concert, set for 3 p.m. on Oct. 9 at Andalusia City Hall.

“Most of the musicians in this group are members of the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra, including Andalusia’s own Johnny Brewer, music faculty and Ensemble co-director at LBWCC. They will play a range of classical and contemporary pieces that will be a real treat.”

The performance will feature Gordan Langford’s “London Miniatures,” Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Procession of the Nobels,” Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition,” and many other works.

“If you know anyone who plays, or has played, a brass instrument in the school band or Ensemble, this would be a wonderful opportunity to hear a high level of mastery of their instrument with a wide range of musical expressiveness,” said Riedel.

The Four Seasons Brass was originally founded in 1992 by Dale Riegle, Don Snowden and Lee Leffard, and revived in 2014.

Ticket prices are $15 for regular admission, and $10 for students, and are available at the LBWCC president’s office, Harold’s Discount Furniture, and St. Mary’s Episcopal Church office.
