Carillon Brass Presents "Bach's Lunch" Concert

by Jennifer Hodges, Public Relations Writer

Carillon Brass, a quintet from the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, will present a free concert at noon March 14 in the Dixon Ministry Center Recital Hall. Charles Pagnard, the group’s principal trumpet and a Cedarville professor, said the program will include a wide variety of music, from classical to contemporary works.

According to Pagnard, fun is the trademark of Carillon Brass concerts. “We pride ourselves on being entertaining as well as musical,” Pagnard said. “We like to have fun with music, and we like our audience to have fun as well.”

The Carillon Brass includes Pagnard and Alan Siebert on trumpet, Aaron Brant on French horn, Tim Anderson on trombone and Tim Northcutt on tuba. The quintet was created as part of the Dayton Philharmonic’s educational outreach program to bring classical music to Miami Valley schools. All members of the group are professors of music and part of Dayton Philharmonic, and they perform in more than 100 schools each year.

Concert guests are invited to bring lunch to the event, which is part of the department of music and worship’s Bach’s Lunch series. Water is the only liquid permitted in the Recital Hall.
