The Central Lakes Concert Association (CLCA) will present its last concert of the season, METALES M5, on Friday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Jefferson High School gymnasium.

METALES M5 is Mexico's finest brass quintet, consisting of two trumpets, one French horn, trombone and a tuba. The group plays a balance of classical pieces, which they play in costume, and lighter pop tunes, including a 007 segment, also in costume. The group finishes off with Mexican folk tunes, including a bullfight scene with the 4'11" trombonist playing the part of the bull.
