• Strike up the band: Event occurs from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. At The Lyric Theatre, 59 SW Flagler Ave., Stuart. That’s Canadian Brass, one of the most popular brass ensembles performing today. The group has spent more than four decades bringing the sound and excitement of brass music to audiences around the world with the hallmarks of entertainment, virtuosity, spontaneity and, most of all, fun. Canadian Brass began in 1970, when friends Chuck Daellenbach and Gene Watts came together to form a brass quintet in a chamber music setting. They quickly filled the three remaining chairs and began presenting a full range of music from their trademark Baroque and Dixieland tunes to new compositions and arrangements created especially for them. Masters of concert presentations, they have developed a unique and engaging stage presence and rapport with audiences that allows them to move from formal classical presentations to music served up with a lively dialogue and theatrical effects. Canadian Brass recordings are available at http://www.canadianbrassstore.com. Canadian Brass appears by arrangement with IMG Artists,7 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019. Tel: 212/994-3500.

Story time at the Court House Cultural Center runs from 10 - 10:30 a.m. Volunteer readers from Bridges Montessori, The Pine School and PNC Bank, among others, select books that celebrate the arts in some way. Selections may involve a beautifully illustrated storybook with the reader explaining the medium used or it could be a ‘learn to count’ book using Van Gogh’s sunflowers. One volunteer discussed the color wheel using books about rainbows. Parent or guardian must accompany the child for the duration of the program and families are encouraged to inger, mingle, and enjoy the exhibit after the Story Time in the Gallery presentation. There is no cost for these special mornings and, although geared for preschoolers, accompanied children of any age are welcome.
