The Midland Odessa Symphony & Chorale is billing the March 3 show as a dazzling tribute to the musical legacy of the supergroup Chicago.
So those who love a little “Saturday in the Park” and “If You Leave Me Now” or “You’re the Inspiration” will get a rare treat when the Brass Transit joins the symphony orchestra for a concert spanning all the hits from Chicago’s golden age.
In a news release, the MOSC detailed that concert goers can expect “incredible energy and spectacular lighting” when Brass Transit – Colour My World – The Music of Chicago performs March 3rd at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center.
Formed in 2008 the band brought together eight Canadian award winning musicians. Their sole purpose, the group’s website stated, was to pay tribute to one of the world’s greatest and most successful rock groups of all time, Chicago.
Since then, the group has toured North America and Mexico performing the music of Chicago.
Brass Transit performances with full symphony and orchestral arrangements have been called spellbinding by reviewers.
They recently produced their first CD taking top hits from the 1970s and recording them with horns in the Chicago style.
The show is presented by Lissa Noël Wagner with Frances Brown and the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale, Brass Transit will be joined by 50 of MOSC’s professional musicians performing under the baton of Music Director and Conductor Gary Lewis.
