“Mr. Richard Brown and his 17 piece orchestra & 4 singers graced the stage at our annual Gala this past weekend. As the Director of Events for The Bryan Museum I hire musicians all the time but few have been as delightful to work with as Mr. Richard Brown. He is professional, patient, flexible, and was willing to help me create a customized music program for our 350 Gala guests, which included Governor Greg Abbott and entrepreneur Phil Anshutz. The music is always a major component to any event and their music was absolutely perfect for our Fundraiser. The vocalists were simply amazing.
The Richard Brown Orchestra is a class act and the music is the Best in the business.
Thank you for making our Gala come to life!”
