    Presented by the School of Music (Special Music Events)

    Gateway Brass is a brass quintet with percussion which proudly showcases military professionalism at DoD ceremonies and entertaining public concerts throughout the Gulf Coast region on behalf of the United States Air Force. This virtuoso group of active duty Airman musicians performs an exciting range of musical styles spanning five centuries.

    The ensemble is a component of the USAF Band of the West located at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas where Air Education & Training Command conducts Basic Military Training for over 30,000 young men and women every year. Because all enlisted Airmen must first pass through JBSA-Lackland, it is known as "The Gateway to the Air Force" which became the inspiration for the group's name.

    Extraordinary British actor Julian Sands was approached in 2005 by the Nobel Prize-winning playwright and poet Harold Pinter to prepare a set of Pinter’s poems for a special presentation in London. This extraordinary collaboration evolved into the wonderfully humorous and fascinating solo show “A Celebration of Harold Pinter,” directed by John Malkovich and nominated for a 2013 Drama Desk Award.

    This performance contains mature language.
