Year of the Dragon
October 20 @ 2:30 pm -4:30 pm
Brass Band Northwest opens our season with a bang featuring one of the very few works originally written for brass band that received such notoriety that it was transcribed for more common ensembles: The Year of the Dragon by Philip Sparke.
Sparke wrote Year of the Dragon as a tribute to Wales, which features a dragon on its national flag. Our program mixes Welsh composers and music about dragons.
