Academy of Music Ballroom
Presenting: the brass family! The brass family is the loudest of the orchestra, and can be heard from far, far away, making its instruments perfect for fanfares and announcements. This family includes the trumpet, trombone, French horn, and tuba. Brass players produce sound by buzzing their lips into the mouthpiece. Philadelphia Orchestra musician Ernesto Tovar Torres will guide the audience through this regal instrument family.
