Shell Point Retirement Community welcomes Spanish Brass on Thursday, December 6 as part of the 10th Annual Fine and Performing Arts Concert Series. This concert will begin at 7:30pm in the Village Church auditorium located on The Island at Shell Point, and tickets are $35 each.

Enjoy the delightful music of the Christmas season with Spanish Brass, a brilliant quintet comprised of two trumpets, a trombone, a French horn, and a tuba. From classical to contemporary, Spanish Brass has spanned the globe performing eclectic musical programs from an elegant repertoire to the delight of audiences from Hong Kong to Brazil to New York and beyond.

Since capturing first prize in the 1996 “Ville de Narbonne” 6th International Competition for Brass Quintets (France), Spanish Brass has enthralled audiences at prestigious events such as the Great American Brass Band Festival, Festival de Musique de Radio (France), Granada International Festival of Music and Dance (Spain), Cheju Summer Festival (Korea), Kalavrita Festival (Greece), and many others. With impeccable phrasing and collaborative chemistry, Spanish Brass offers selections ranging from Bach and Mozart to flamboyant Hispanic works by Albeniz and Turina.

“We know that audience members will marvel at the dynamic range and rhythmic intensity of this award-winning quintet,” said Dawn Boren, director of resident life.

Tickets for the concerts are $35 each, or an additional ticket option is available which allows purchasers to pick three concerts out of the remaining four concerts for $90. To purchase tickets, or receive more information, please visit or call (239) 454-2067.
