Collaborating with the Denver Brass and Celtic Pipers will be Joseph Galema, Principal Organist at First United Methodist.

Founded in 1981, The Denver Brass is recognized nationally and internationally as one the premiere ensembles of its kind. Comprised of 14 full-time professional musicians, The Denver Brass offers its audiences an entirely new experience by skillfully blending the highest caliber of musical excellence with traditional brass music, original compositions, and multi-media techniques.
