Seraph Brass at Union Presbyterian Seminary


  • November 27, 2018 | 7:00 pm

Seraph Brass, America’s premiere all-female brass ensemble, is closing 2018 with a tour of the Eastern and Northern United States performing newly commissioned works, as well as well-known classics. The group will be appearing at Union Presbyterian Seminary’s Watts Chapel at 7 p.m., November 27.

Seraph Brass, an ensemble founded by international trumpet soloist Mary Elizabeth Bowden, draws from a roster of distinguished female musicians. This performance will feature 10 Seraph Brass musicians: Bowden, Jean Laurenz, Amy McCabe, and Raquel Rodriquez on trumpet; Rachel Velvikis and Chandra Cervantes on horn; Hana Beloglavec and Donna Parkes on trombone; Gretchen Renshaw James on euphonium and tuba; and Samantha Lake on tuba.

The concert is the second in the “Pulling Out All the Stops” series, held by the seminary to raise awareness about the need for a new pipe organ for its historic chapel. Through the generosity of sponsors, the concert is free and open to the public. Donations to support the Organ Fund will be appreciated. Parking is available at 3401 Brook Road, as well as other locations on and around campus.
