TROY — Carillon Brass, a quintet from the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, will present a free concert at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, April 24, at the First United Methodist Church in Troy.
The concert is sponsored by Troy Mayors’ Concerts, Inc., the same group that brings a concert to the Public Square in downtown Troy each August.
Charles Pagnard, the group’s principal trumpet player and Cedarville University professor of music, said the program will include a wide variety of music.
“We pride ourselves on being entertaining as well as musical,” Pagnard said. “We like to have fun with music, and we like our audience to have fun as well.”
The Carillon Brass will be joined in a few compositions by the First United Methodist Church Chancel Handbell Choir under the direction of David Pinkerton of Troy.
The Carillon Brass includes Charles Pagnard and Alan Siebert on trumpet, Aaron Brant on French horn, Chad Arnow on trombone and Tim Northcutt on tuba. The quintet was created as part of the Dayton Philharmonic’s educational outreach program to bring classical music to more than 100 schools each year. All members of the group are professors of music and professional musicians. They have performed nationally and internationally and hold advanced degrees in music.
