The three musicians in the Ohio Factory Seconds Brass Trio are Jack Sutte, trumpet, Jesse McCormick, horn, and Richard Stout, trombone.  They all play, full time, in the Cleveland  Orchestra, a premiere orchestra.  The name "Factory Seconds" comes from the fact that they each play second chair in the Cleveland Orchestra.   They are going to play a wide range of music from very old to very new.
It will be music that can't be heard anywhere else.

The classics go down home

The Cleveland Bluegrass Orchestra, is the world's most exclusive bluegrass band, largely due to its membership requirement of first being accepted into The Cleveland Orchestra on a different instrument! Acclaimed in performances across Northeast Ohio, the group is dedicated to the proposition that it is impossible not to have a good time listening to bluegrass. The musicians' instruments for this concert will be fiddle: Tina Struble, who is principal harpist with the Cleveland Orchestra; banjo: Mark Drumm, who is a member of the first violin section with the orchestra; mandolin: Jeff Zehngut, who is a member of the second violin section; guitar: Henry Peyrebrune, who is a member of the bass section; and bass:  Derek Zadinsky, who is also a member of the bass section.  They bring their considerable talents to bring down home music to appreciative audiences.

This concert is sponsored by the Jet Express, Arby's, and Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick and Jack Hilbert.  Admission at the door is $15; students are admitted free.  Following the performance, the Port Clinton Area Arts Council will host a reception for the audience to meet and welcome the performers.
