The outdoor concert will feature pop, classical and various genres of jazz music from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday. The concert will be held on the north lawn of the mansion.
"We are really excited about having a brass quintet on the grounds of the Lanier Mansion," said Anne Fairchild, eastern region program manager for the Lanier Mansion.
Proceeds from the concert will help fund historic site programming and building improvements.
Concert-goers will hear crisp marches, melodic classics and pop favorites such as "That's a Plenty," "Ain't Misbehaving," "Amazing Grace," music of Star Wars, Fanfare from La Peri and other works by John Williams, Paul Dukas and Victor Ewald, according to a news release.
"I love the sound of these instruments in this setting. It will be amazing," Fairchild said.
Fairchild said anyone who attends is welcome to bring a lawn chair, blanket or picnic basket.
Ghostnote Music will be on hand to discuss local music education and show their display of brass instruments.
Wine will be available for sale from the Madison Vineyards Winery. In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the Lanier-Madison Visitors Center, located 601 W. First St. in downtown Madison.
This activity is made possible in part by the Regional Arts Partner, the Indiana Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Admission to the concert is $5 for adults and $2 for children. For information, call (812) 265-3526 or email@example.com.
