Chamber Music Concerts (CMC) presents the American Brass Quintet on Friday, October 13 at 7:30pm and Saturday, October 14th at 3pm at the Southern Oregon University (SOU) Music Recital Hall.

Saturday’s program includes music from Gabrieli, Palestrina, and Fuchs. Tickets are available for $33/$38, with a special price of only $5 for full-time students and Oregon Trail Card holders. Matinee tickets for ages 19-35 are only $20 (proof of age required).

Chamber Music Concerts and the Britt Music & Arts Festival are partnering to present the American Brass Quintet in a weeklong residency from October 9-13, which will include outreach programs, master classes, and school events. Please visit ChamberMusicConcerts.org for details.

The American Brass Quintet is internationally recognized as one of the premier chamber music ensembles of our time, celebrated for peerless leadership in the brass world. As 2013 recipient of Chamber Music America’s highest honor, the Richard J. Bogomolny National Service Award for significant and lasting contributions to the field, the Quintet's rich history includes performances in Asia, Australia, Central and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Canada and the United States; a discography of nearly 60 recordings; and the premieres of over 150 contemporary brass works.

The New York Times recently wrote that “among North American brass ensembles none is more venerable than the American Brass Quintet,” and American Record Guide has lauded ABQ “of all the brass quintets, the most distinguished.” Through its acclaimed performances, diverse programming, commissioning, extensive discography and educational mission, the American Brass Quintet has created a legacy unparalleled not only in the brass community, but in the chamber music field at large.
