CHICAGO BRASS QUINTET March 3, 2016 7:30 PM

The Chicago Brass Quintet was formed in 1964 to promote the appreciation and enjoyment of brass chamber music through performances, educational workshops, broadcasts, recording, and commissioning new works. During their first decade

the quintet’s energies were devoted to educational concerts in and around the Chicago metropolitan area and exploring new repertoire for the brass quintet in the form of original works for brass and arrangements of classic compositions adaptable for brass.

 

Today the quintet continues to maintain an active touring and recording schedule including guest performances with Symphony Orchestras, recitals with Organ and Brass, Brass Quintet and Piano, a Gospel program with the Brown Singers of Columbus Ohio and of course a wide variety of programs with the Chicago Brass Quintet in recital.
