Giannini Brass will perform in Coastal Carolina Universitys Wheelwright Auditorium on Sunday, Feb. 18 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10; $5 for students under age 18.

The Giannini Brass was formed in 1989 and named after Vittorio Giannini, the composer who founded the North Carolina School of the Arts. Members of the Giannini Brass perform in most of the professional orchestras in the Carolinas and have toured and performed with orchestras and chamber music ensembles throughout the United States and Europe.

The six-member ensemble has performed in a variety of unusual and interesting performance settings, including multi-media planetarium concerts, with symphony orchestras and on radio and television programs.

The group includes: Mark Clodfelter on trumpet; Steve Kirkman, percussion instructor at Coastal, on drums; Joseph Mount on horn; Chris Ferguson on trombone; David Nicholson on tuba; and Kenneth Wilmot on trumpet.

Giannini Brass has released two CDs: Big-Shot Brass, on the Sonari label, and Christmas With The Giannini Brass.
