Brass Can Do Anything

Hot Horns


Beginning with a blast from a prehistoric cow horn, Hot Horns engages students in an action packed program, musically portraying the history of the brass family from “past to present.” Along the way, students experience the various periods of music with cross-curricular connections made to world history, physics, and math. In Brass Can Do Anything, students will learn about each brass instrument, the differences, and similarities between brass and woodwind instruments, and the science behind sound. The Brass Can Do Anything show incorporates a few student volunteers, as well as entire audience interaction.
