" Precision, excitement, and charisma- these words best describe the audience engaging performance by the Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass. Our stage was filled with energized, talented musicians who performed a variety of works from the Baroque to Jazz eras. The audience was on their feet before the last cut-off of the baton. This is a show that should not be missed. "
