Behind the Curtain Series: All-American Stars

In the month of January, join the ACO Brass Quintet for a virtuoso program featuring Steven Sacco’s charming quintet, seamlessly transitioning from lyrical passages to spirited rhythms, culminating in a vibrant mambo finale.


Join ACO musicians for a very special education program that breaks down the process of putting together a chamber concert. Held in January, February, and March, these sessions provide a unique learning experience of how these professionals prepare individually, and how they work together (without a conductor!) to bring some of the most beautiful music ever written to life. Each session includes a Q&A and ends with the performance of one piece from their entire program.

Seating is limited. Event is free of charge.

This Chautauqua South event is sponsored by the Friends of the Martin County Library System, Inc.

All-American Stars
Join the ACO Brass Quintet for a virtuoso program that ranges from Steven Sacco’s charming quintet—at turns lyrical and boisterous (ending with a mambo), to excerpts from Gershwin’s groundbreaking, and era-defining opera Porgy and Bess. Opening the concert is a mid-century gem by legendary horn virtuoso Verne Reynolds.
