De Soto Brass Band unites generations with music

The De Soto Brass Band follows in the tradition of brass bands over the past several centuries: young musicians play alongside older, more seasoned musicians, almost in an apprenticeship fashion, to keep the music alive. The approximately 60-member band is in it's third season and has members as young as 13 and as old as 70. Their performance on Thursday, Oct. 13, showcased three world premieres, two of which were composed by band members and the third an original arrangement by a band member.
