St. Louis Brass Quintet

Formed in 1964 with members of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra

The ensemble is backed by a rich career.

Creates sharp and vivid sounds from baroque to jazz

American peace carving a light rhythm is effective enough!

They are a quintet in residence at the University of Missouri, St. Louis, and have toured extensively with various arts councils throughout the United States. They have frequently performed at music festivals around the country, including the Norwegian Brass Band Festival and the Long Beach International Brass Fest, showcasing their brilliant ensembles and vivid sounds, demonstrating the capabilities of their career. In 1995, special performances were held in Bombay and India, and received high acclaim. They have been actively performing in Europe and have released many CDs, making them must-have albums for brass fans around the world. In addition to the quintet's original programs, the jazz ensemble that includes percussion is popular for its dynamic music and sound full of the crisp swing feel unique to American brass, and the natural music that they have created has transcended genres. Captivate your audience by choice. In addition to being active as soloists, the members also participate in many other ensembles, and are all veterans of today's American brass.
