Presidio Brass is a dynamic force in American brass chamber music. With a unique and exciting repertoire written specifically for the ensemble, Presidio Brass is committed to providing engaging musical programs as well as developing close ties to its audiences.

Hailing from San Diego, the ensemble first came together with the primary mission to promote music education and appreciation in the next generation.

The Presidio Brass Experience is an excellent way to expose students to the quality of a nationally touring brass quintet, inspiring them to promote and cultivate their own musical abilities.

That commitment continues to be exhibited each time Presidio Brass goes out on tour; every performance is coupled with a master class or school program for which the members of the quintet volunteer their time.

The Tahoe Arts Project will be presenting Presidio Brass to the students and public in October. They are performing for various schools and hosting workshops and then on Friday, Oct. 5 the group will present a public performance.

The evening public performance by Presidio Brass is ”Sounds of the Cinema,” a show that brings together some of the finest classical music used in films as well as the most popular original music written specifically for the movies.

The highlight of the concert comes when local students take the stage with Presidio Brass. Playing a side-by-side performance with a professional ensemble creates a memorable experience for all and brings community attention to music education.

“It’s an incredible pleasure to work with and perform for schools all over the country. Having the chance to inspire a young mind or to encourage a young musician to work hard and chase their dreams is as good as it gets,” Timothy J. Tesh, who has a doctorate in music and is a member of Presidio Brass, said.

“Now we have the unbelievable opportunity to work and perform in one of the most beautiful places in the country, South Lake Tahoe. Believe me, the camera will be packed and ready to go,” Tesh said.

Tesh is not only a music educator he also is a Grammy-nominated performing artist and trumpet clinician.

The public performance is at South Tahoe High School Theater, 1735 Lake Tahoe Boulevard, South Lake Tahoe, Nev., at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children. Call 530-542-3632 for more information or to purchase tickets.
