The M A Brass Ensemble will perform a benefit concert for Timber Lake Playhouse (TLP) on Saturday, September 21 at the theater in Mount Carroll.

The one-night-only concert event will begin at 7:00 pm at TLP. General admission is $15 at the door. Large groups may purchase in advance at 815-244-2035.
M A Brass includes Aaron White, Jon James and Elizabeth Judd of Sterling, Mark Dempsey of Dixon and Mark Bressler of Mount Carroll. The regionally renowned musicians will perform an evening of American standards. Mr. White said, "M A Brass would like to thank Timber Lake Playhouse for helping us bring live music to people everywhere."
TLP Executive Director James Beaudry added, "Music is such an integral part of what we do, and we're proud to employ professional musicians for all of our musicals at TLP. When we were approached by the ensemble about a concert, we were thrilled to be a part of it."
Later this fall, TLP will present the 3rd annual interactive presentation of The Rocky Horror Picture Show Saturday, October 27 at 9:30 pm. Tickets will be $15. Interactive prop bags may also be purchased for $10 each.
