Brass Quintet To Do Rock And Roll Show

The Brass Arts Quintet at Tennessee Tech University will present a free concert at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 4, in Wattenbarger Auditorium of the Bryan Fine Arts Building, located on the TTU campus at 1150 N. Dixie Ave. The program will feature members of the group in works from the '50s onward. The program explores the evolution of Rock and Roll music as an important influence on popular music, and features selections by important innovators including Elvis Presley, the Beatles, and Blood, Sweat, and Tears. Program selections range from early Doo-Wop hits including "Duke of Earl" and "I Wonder Why" to "I am the Walrus" by the Beatles and "Wipe Out" by The Surfaris. A special aspect of the multimedia concert will be projections of important record album covers and photographs of the artists featured on the program.
