A narrated multi-media program that's one of Big Brass’ most popular concerts around the United States!
With a core message of love and unity, this concert is an uplifting and joyful celebration of life and our shared humanity. The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass is composed of some of America’s top brass musicians dedicated to bringing the joyous experience of great music to a wide range of audiences.
Born and raised in New Orleans, Rodney began his musical studies at the age of 6. At 11, he began taking classical trumpet lessons with his cousin, Wynton Marsalis. By 15, Rodney was referred to as a "trumpet prodigy."
On the advice of Ellis Marsalis, The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass created a concert format that breaks the usual barriers between genres and strives to create connection between the audience and performers. They’re a group that always reflects the diverse makeup of men and women in the American culture, mixing classical, big band swing, New Orleans jazz and straight ahead jazz.
No one plays absolutely beautifully all the time...unless you're my cousin Rodney.
