Hollywood is the theme for Brass Unlimited’s seventh annual Sounds of Brass Pops Concert on Sunday at Tacoma Community College.
Guest vocalist Melanie Stevens, who performs with local jazz bands, will sing two medleys. One will be from the musical “Chicago” and the other is a tribute to composer Marvin Hamlisch.
Additional selections will include a Duke Ellington medley and music from Broadway’s “The Producers” and the movies “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Home Alone.”
Yes, the same “Home Alone” with Macaulay Culkin.
“It’s actually quite a clever score by John Williams,” director John Falskow said of the 1990 movie.
The concert will be a unique experience because the ensemble’s 16 members all play brass instruments (with a rhythm section) using custom arrangements, he said.
“It’s a testament to the talent and musicianship we have here in Tacoma. And it’s a lot of fun,” Falskow said.
The final number, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” will include an audience sing-a-long.
