All aboard! The next stop in the IPO at Ravisloe Summer Music
Series will be on July 2 at 7 p.m. when the IPO Brass Quintet arrives to take guests on “A Musical Journey through America.”
Designed to celebrate America’s birthday with a nod to her diverse musical make up, the songs will transport listeners from sea to shining sea with a range of styles that include jazz, swing, ragtime and some light classics, explained quintet organizer Greg Fudala.
“Plus it’s just a really fun concert. We do a lot of talking from the stage as we narrate the selections, so it’s pretty interactive with the audience,” he added.
The musical journey will feature “New York, New York,” “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Meet Me in St. Louis,” “San Francisco,” as well as other selections highlighting New Orleans, Chicago, the Old South and the New North, ending with “Stars and Stripes Forever.”
Members of the quintet include IPO musicians Greg Fudala, trumpet; John Schreckengost, horn; Adam Moen, trombone and Sean Whitaker, tuba, along with a non-IPO colleague, Ross Beacraft, also on trumpet.
