CLASSICAL | Brass and Bagpipes 

Joining forces in a single concert event are the University of Rochester Brass Choir and the Rochester Scottish Pipes and Drums. The big sounds of the concert will include fanfares, marches, hymns, and traditional pipe band selections like "Scotland the Brave" and "Amazing Grace." The UofR Brass Choir is led by founder and director Josef Hanson, and is a 32-member ensemble. Since 1919, the Rochester Scottish Pipes & Drums has been dedicated to the presentation and preservation of traditional Scottish pipe music. The true Scottish plaid of the uniform of the corps is taken from the 42nd Highland Division, the Black Watch of the British Army, by special permission of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

Bring on the Brass and the Bagpipes! Takes place Sunday, February 17, 3 p.m. at St. Mary's Church, 15 St. Mary's Place. Free. 273-5157.
