For more than 27 years, Boston Brass’ unique brand of humor has been a staple of the brass quintet. The humor is a way for the group to bridge the gap of classical formality, one of the reasons they have been a repeat performer in Music at Noon: The Logan Series.

Boston Brass’ latest performance in the program takes place Tuesday, April 7, at noon in the McGarvey Commons of the Reed Union Building. Admission is free, and reserved parking for audience members will be available in the Reed lot. The performance is part of the 25th season of Music at Noon: The Logan Series.
