Brass Impact!

The UNCSA Brass Festival presents Brass Impact!, featuring trumpet virtuoso Adam Rapa, “a musician who could put more famous horn blowers to shame,” according to the Tampa Tribune.

The program includes Rapa’s “Tales of the Orient Express,” an evocative work with Arabic and Balkan flavors; Valerie Coleman’s “Fanfare for Uncommon Times,” whose mood, according to The New York Times, “seems at once reflective and restless, uplifting and ominous”; and a fresh, new take on J.S. Bach’s electrifying Toccata and Fugue in D minor.
