PBE will bring our sparkly brass quintet sounds with a Groupmuse performance in a historic home near the site of the old Slabtown lumber mill. (Milled remnants were called slabs. Locals stacked slabs in front of homes for heating and cooking.)

As an added bonus after the concert, walk 2 blocks to nearby Chapman Elementary School to see one of the largest known roosting sites of migrating Vaux’s Swifts (only at this time of year).
