Sparkle City Brass

The Town of Tryon announces a short series of chamber music concerts in Rogers Park. The series will kick-off this Sunday, May 15 at 3 p.m. in Rogers Park, located at 55 West Howard Street.

Sparkle City Brass was formed in 2003 in Spartanburg, S.C. The brass quintet performs several concerts a year and appears frequently for church services, weddings, graduations and other area special events. Current members of the group include Kenneth Frick and Jamie Kirby on trumpet, Christina Cornell on horn, Mike Miller on trombone and Marshall Kirby on tuba. Collectively, the group’s music interests run the musical gamut.

The Rogers Park chamber music series is sponsored by the Town of Tryon, in partnership with the Tryon Downtown Development Association, through funding from the Polk County Community Foundation Kirby Rogers Park Event Fund. Other concerts are scheduled for May 29 and June 12.
