The Saugerties Pro Musica’s 2013/​14 season begins with a Big Brass Bang  when Munich’s Harmonic Brass returns to Saugerties for  it’s biennial North American tour on September 22nd, at 3pm.

Known for their musical precision and crowd-​​pleasing antics, this European quintet will delight the audience with it’s sometimes serious and sometimes humorous program of classical and popular music. It’s always one of the most popular concerts of the season.

The quintet is composed of: Hans Zellner, trumpet, Gergely Lukács, trumpet, Andreas Binder, french horn, Thomas Lux, trombone, and Manfred Häberlein, tuba. Schooled in the classics, anchored in musical performance and always high on the joy of life, this quintet will make you smile, stomp your feet, and maybe even bring a tear to your eye.
