MOUNT VERNON, WA (June 3, 2009) – The Brass Menagerie will celebrate their 20th anniversary with a free concert at 4 p.m. on May 31 at Bethany Covenant Church.

Originally known as the Bethany Brass Quintet, the group has become popular throughout the area. The group formed after they played together in a Christmas orchestra at Bethany in 1988.

The concert will include the first three movements of a piece called “Brass Menagerie.” The quintet also will play selections that range from Bach to Bernstein, including many all-time favorites such as “Closer Walk” and “Stars and Stripes,” with the famous piccolo solo done by Arlington High School band director Grabowski on a tuba.

Pastor Randall Wilken will perform several selections with the quintet. Former member Lanny Jacobs, who used to play with Stan Kenton, will perform an adlib solo in “The Dead Man Blues.”
