As Chicago’s original brass quintet, these five virtuosi possess the technical and musical mastery needed to perform music of all periods and styles with equal aplomb. The Chicago Brass Quintet brings style, grace, dazzling technique and humor to every performance. Their concert will include antiphonal music by Gabrieli as well as works by Vivaldi, Morricone, and Chicago Scenes by Mark Elliot.
The quintet has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Highlights have included guest performances for the International Trumpet Guild Conference in New York and London, a two-and-a-half-week tour of Hawaii, performances at the Kennedy Center, West Point Academy, numerous tours throughout Illinois and the Midwest, the South, and East Coast, and two tours of Brazil and Taiwan. The quintet has enjoyed a close association with Chicago’s fine arts radio station, WFMT, often performing live from their studios for broadcast over National Public Radio and the CBC in Canada. The group is comprised of Ross Beacraft and Matthew Lee, trumpet; Sharon Jones, French horn; Adam Moen, trombone; and Dan Anderson, tuba.
