The grand-opening ceremonies for the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas, featured one of her orchestras and the spectacular debut of the “Gala Girls,” which has performed from Florida to Las Vegas to AT&T (Cowboy) Stadium.
Even though Ms. Brooks specializes in larger ensembles, she also contracts brass and woodwind quintets, string quartets, trios, and solo musicians for many events in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and beyond. No event is too big or too small, and there is no limitation on the type of group or style of music. Her ability to customize each ensemble for the distinct characteristics of each event is Ms. Brooks’ trademark, as well as demonstrating versatility with all styles of music.
