About our Free Family Series

"If you missed The Copper Street Brass last week then you missed a lot...they blew the roof off the place!"

Faulk County Register

We know that sometimes the biggest fans of music are the smallest people, and we also know that it can be hard as a parent to attend evening concerts with young ones in tow. That's why we've created a special series of concerts designed with families in mind. With free admission, activities for the whole family, and family-friendly venues these concerts are sure to be fun for everyone!

The two free family concerts in February 2017 are perfect for families and children of all ages to learn, explore, and get their “hands on” what brass instruments can do! “Hands on Brass” at the Science Museum of Minnesota and “Inside the Brass Quintet” at Hennepin Ave. UMC in Minneapolis are both free of charge and full of learning!

On February 18, 2017, the Copper Street Brass brings its entertaining educational presentation, “Hands on Brass”, to the Science Museum of Minnesota for a hands-on, interactive, fun musical experience for families with children of all ages! During the concert, children of all ages - and adults! - will learn about the brass family, how brass instruments work, and music basics through familiar, exciting, and up-tempo music. After each show, kids can touch and try brass instruments, learn about the science of sound with SMM staff, and even make their own instrument to take home!

Saturday, February 18th from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Thank you for the outstanding performance!  People are still talking about it!  Words cannot effectively describe the joy and high musicianship we experienced with the concert by The Copper Street Brass.  The program had ultimate variety and musicality, and was enjoyed by all who attended.

What People Say About our Concerts

Beyond good stage presence and an engaging rapport with the audience, this group is seriously good. The ensemble is tight, and pitch-perfect. Everyone blends well, and it is clear the musicians enjoy playing together.
