The Central Valley Brass, formed in 1981 by the late longtime Ceres resident Ernie Bucio, is a quintet comprised of his widow, Karen Bucio who plays the horn; trumpet players Robert Stone and David Livingston; tuba player Keith Baltz of Ceres; and trombonist Byron Yerzy.

In addition to playing trumpet, Stone is also a composer and the centerpiece of this concert is one of his compositions, titled, "Childhood Impressions." It includes three movements: Toy Soldier's March, The Ballerina's Waltz and The Juggler's Act.

The concert will end with an arrangement honoring veterans.
