In May of 2017 the Elmhurst Symphony Brass Quintet performed at each elementary school and showcased their brass instruments which included trumpets, French horn, trombone, and the tuba. The quintet explained each instrument individually and also performed a short melody for the kids so they could hear that instrument by itself.
“The assembly was a great success with all kids from the three elementary schools in District 101! They learned more about brass instruments and they heard those instruments in a live performance, both individually and in a group. The hope is that when it is time for them to join Band in 4th grade, many kids will pick up the instruments presented to them during this assembly.”
