The Brass Roots Trio, whose music is a colorful mix of styles and sounds, will be the featured performers during a Lompoc Concert Association program scheduled for Feb. 17 at the First United Methodist Church of Lompoc, 925 North F St.

Doors for the concert will open at 6:45 p.m., with the show set to start at 7:30. Tickets, which will be available at the door, are $25 for adults and $5 for students.

The Brass Roots Trio is made up of musicians Travis Heath (trumpet and flugelhorn), Douglas Lundeen (French horn and vocals) and Rosetta Senkus Bacon (piano). Since 2004, the group has toured across the U.S. and U.K., including a performance at the White House in 2009.

As pioneers in the combination of piano, trumpet and horn, the ensemble has “dazzled audiences and critics alike with their pyrotechnic virtuosity, artistic passion and adventurous programming,” according to the group’s website.

The Brass Roots Trio’s repertoire moves from the traditional chamber music genre to fuse classical, jazz, Americana and Latin styles. The group’s presentation also includes commentaries that are informative and often humorous.

Individually, the members of the group have demonstrated their talents with engagements at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall in New York City and at cultural centers and festivals worldwide.
