KEYSER, W.Va. — Armed forces veterans will be honored when the Bayfield Brass Quintet brings its talents to the region as the Highland Arts Unlimited season continues Nov. 10 at 3 p.m. at Keyser Presbyterian Church, 300 S. Mineral St.
Bayfield Brass was founded in 1989 when all five of the members, including C. Rhoades Whitehill of Keyser, comprised the United States Naval Academy Band Brass Quintet.
Their partnership grew so that when some of its original members went on to other full-time endeavors, the ensemble remained together to perform in the Baltimore-Washington region in their “off-duty” hours.
Admission for the upcoming concert is free to Highland Arts Unlimited members. Area students under 18 will be admitted free of charge and young children are admitted free with a paying adult.
Advance tickets are available at a discount over those purchased at the door at Anderson’s Corner, Romney; Reed’s Drug Store, Cannon’s Ace Hardware and The Candlewyck, Keyser; the Allegany Arts Council in Cumberland or by calling 304-788-3066 or 304-788-9465.
Tickets also can be purchased online at Eventbrite.com.
Highland Arts programs are presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture, and History and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts, memberships and corporate contributions and financial support from the Mineral County Board of Education with in-kind support from West Virginia University Potomac State College.
