Alliance Brass Visits Rockland
Music students at Rockland High School and Rogers Middle School were treated to a concert/clinic on Thursday, March 10 when the Alliance Brass of Chicago visited Rockland.
The quintet is on tour in the northeast area and is also attending the Massachusetts Musicians Education Association’s conference in Boston this week.
Members of the group performed pieces from their classic/pop repertoire in the high school auditorium for chorus students, and then moved to the middle school lecture hall where middle school and high school band students listened to them perform.
They also answered students’ questions about their music and their careers in music, encouraging students to follow their passion wherever it takes them in life.
Their website says, “Whether through performance, clinics, or workshops, the Alliance Brass has an infectious enthusiasm they use to inspire a passion for music wherever they go.”
