The featured special guest is Puget Brass, a local British brass band of about 30 musicians which performs throughout the Pacific Northwest. Inspired by the movie, Brassed Off, and formed in 1999, Puget Brass performs a varied repertoire from brass band classics and marches to classical, jazz, and popular music. Please see http://pugetbrass.org/.

Also participating are the Seattle Temple Brass Band, Seattle Temple Songsters, and young musicians from The Salvation Army School of Music (SASOM). SASOM offers daily after-school tutoring and music education at the temple location. According to SASOM’s mission statement on Facebook, “We believe music is the key to creating and instilling in every child an appreciation for community, a desire to achieve, and the ability to excel individually and collectively.” See http://www.facebook.com/TSASOM and click on “About.”
