The Brass Roots Trio will be performing on February 25, 2017, at 7:30pm.
French Horn, Trumpet, Piano…plus the bonus of a brilliant operatic tenor!
Brass Roots Trio captivates audiences with breathtaking virtuosity and artistic passion. With TRUMPET, FRENCH HORN & PIANO the trio creates symphonic sounds that melt into sultry jazz, making three instruments sound like a small orchestra.
Their adventurous programming takes unexpected twists and turns from early Baroque gems to decadent tangos to American spirituals – and the audience is always surprised and thrilled when the horn player breaks out into song with his brilliant tenor voice!
Travis Heath (trumpet), Douglas Lundeen (French horn & vocalist) and Rosetta Senkus Bacon (piano) infuse their music with exuberant energy, and their warm-hearted presentation establishes an immediate connection with the audience.
The trio transitions seamlessly from light classical and jazz to refined chamber music with their artistic finesse, singing sounds and extraordinary phrasing. Now in its 10th season Brass Roots Trio has played to standing ovations and rave reviews in every corner of the US, UK and in Canada.

What the Press is saying about the Brass Roots Trio:
“From Baroque majesty to Brubeck to Gershwin, this was a concert that obviously pleased the large audience, if the three standing ovations are any indication…The trumpet and horn, so resonant and perfect in their sound, together with the piano and Bacon’s arrangements created a full and magnificent ensemble… Brass Roots Trio grows beautiful music.” – Robert Ellis, Times-West Virginian (WV)
“Gershwin, Hayes, Copland and even Billy Joel have never been played better or with more originality than by the Brass Roots Trio. Friday, April 11, brought the blues, ragtime, rodeo, jazz and spiritual music to Colorado Springs like no time before! Piano, trumpet and horn certainly combined for a unique blend of the American musical style…in a fun and entertaining manner.” – The Encounter (CO)
“…deliciously diversified with astounding virtuosity…individually and together they had technique to burn. One doesn’t listen to this kind of playing without realizing it is coming from the soul. Equally at home with classical, jazz and gospel music, this is a hot group to watch!” – Becky Ball, The Oak Ridger (TN)
