The History of Brass at First Night

January 2, 2013

With the new year comes new beginnings, new revelations and, of course, new resolutions. For Landmarks Orchestra our resolution remains true to our mission, and we continue to advance our dream of bringing Boston together as “one city through art and culture”. Boston has many artistic traditions and Landmarks Orchestra hopes to be one that lasts through the ages.

We welcomed 2013 with a performance at the Hynes Convention Center as part of Boston’s First Night Celebration. Children and families swarmed the building and the seats were filled nearly to capacity when Dana Oakes introduced the Landmarks Orchestra Brass Ensemble.

The gentlemen launched into a performance that was as entertaining as it was educational; demonstrating the various sounds their instruments can make and explaining the purpose and origin of each. Following the concert children were greeted in the hall by Landmarks staff and volunteers who were equipped with our signature Musical Matching Game and prizes for all participants.

If you missed us on New Year’s Eve, never fear! Plans for the 2013 season are well underway, we’re expecting to have another busy year!

We look forward to seeing you at the Hatch Shell this summer!

Landmarks Virtuosos began the night with a four-horn execution of Schumann's Concertstück
