NEW ROCHELLE, NY — Join us for a live, original, magical, creative, interactive, entertaining, multi-sensorial program for audiences of all ages. Here’s your opportunity to hear and enjoy your favorite movie soundtracks like never before. Filmharmonic Brass, under the direction of Dominic Derasse, is a fabulous ensemble of  seven of the top brass players from NYC who have made it their mission, as an ensemble, to record & perform film music, exclusively. This concert will feature much of the music on their new CD – the music of John Williams who, arguably, is the most iconic film composer ever.  John Williams has given us the memorable melodies that are synonymous with such movies as Star Wars, Jaws, E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Indiana Jones, and many more.Suggested donation for audience members over 18 years of age: $2.00.Made possible by the Friends of NRPL.

There are several reasons for choosing to record an all John Williams album.  It is an homage to John Williams and a chance for us, as brass musicians, to contribute brand new arrangements (by Charlie Porter and Jihwan Kim) to the brass music world, and in doing so add immensely to the limited repertoire.  Having a recording is also a necessary promotional tool for us, in getting our name out there as a performing/touring ensemble.  Film music is what we are about and we are aiming to set the bar high with this recording!
