Peabody Brass Players Present "Applause For A Cause"

Jan 04, 2011 01:45AM ● Published by Anonymous


Three student groups from the Peabody Conservatory—Brassivity, C Street Brass, and Contrafunktus VII—will perform this month at Applause for a Cause, an annual event that raises money to buy instruments for Baltimore schoolchildren. The event will take place on Thursday, Dec. 9, at 7:30 pm at An die Musik, 409 North Charles Street, Baltimore.

Brassivity and C Street Brass are brass quintets. Contrafunktus VII, which adds a saxophonist and a drummer, plays arrangements by the group’s members of works by rock and pop artists such as Björk and Muse.

“In addition to being a unique performance opportunity for students from Peabody, Applause for a Cause engages the community in a collaborative effort to support a cause that enriches lives,” said graduate trumpet student Matt Kitzen-Abelson, a member of Contrafunktus VII. “We’re happy to do this because we want these kids to have the same opportunities that music has allowed us to enjoy.” All proceeds will go toward the purchase of musical instruments for students from Baltimore City middle and high schools who participate in Tuned-In, a program of the Peabody Preparatory. Through Tuned-In, talented young musicians from families with limited financial resources receive full scholarships for private lessons, ensemble playing, and other activities.

Students from the Tuned-In program will perform side by side with the Conservatory students in a jam session as part of Applause for a Cause. There will also be a silent auction, a raffle, and a reception after the performances.

Peabody Brass Players Present “Applause for a Cause,” Dec. 9 Tickets to Applause for a Cause are $20 for adults and $10 for students. VIP tickets, which reserve front-row seats and include a gift bag, are $50. All but $5 of the ticket price is tax-deductible. To purchase tickets, call An die Musik at 410-385-2638.
