GRAMMY-NOMINATED BAY BRASS ANNOUNCES A
CONCERT HONORING BAY AREA LEGEND DICK AKRIGHT

       On February 28, 2012 at 8:00 PM in the San Francisco Conservatory of Music's Caroline Hume Concert Hall, The Bay Brass will perform a concert in honor of long-time Bay Area instrument repair and craftsman Dick Akright. Conducted by San Francisco Symphony Resident Conductor Donato Cabrera, the program features works that have never been performed by The Bay Brass, including a world premiere by Bay Area trombonist Wayne Wallace, plus works by Debussy, Gabrieli, and Philip Glass, all with special connections to the year 2012.

*** Proceeds from this concert will be donated for scholarships in Akright's name for deserving young musicians to attend La Honda Music Camp, a favorite cause of his. If you are unable to attend the concert but would like to make a tax-deductable donation to the Dick Akright Scholarship Fund, you may do so through NETWORK FOR GOOD on La Honda Music Camp's Bay Brass Concert page.

       Dick Akright has provided essential support to the Bay Area and national brass player community for over 42 years at the thriving Best Instrument Repair Company in Oakland.  Dick has been the foremost primary-care brass instrument doctor when repairs are needed, often on an urgent basis, helping his musical patients to achieve high-level performances whether in the local schools, symphony orchestras or jazz and rock bands. His basement shop, with its subterranean charm, soldering torches ablaze and instruments stacked high, has been the nexus of Bay Area brass life and Dick has been the paragon of warmth and understanding to all who enter.  His generosity to those in need has been legendary and The Bay Brass joins the wider community in our best wishes to Dick on his health challenges.

Exciting News About The Bay Brass
       The Bay Brass' newest CD,
"Sound The Bells!", was nominated for a 2012 GRAMMY award for Best Small Ensemble Performance. Although we didn't win the GRAMMY, we're proud to be one of the 5 nominees. Released in March 2011, the album features premiere recordings of recent American works for brass and was released on the Harmonia-Mundi label. Gramophone magazine states "this Harmonia Mundi SACD release is a brilliant showcase for the thrilling beauty of tonal brass music in the new century, and the splendid virtuosity of the Bay Brass."
