The Brass Quintet is a five-member group with the instrumentation of two trumpets, one French horn, one trombone, and one tuba, though some flexibility for substitutions is available. The Brass Quintet performs in the Instrumental Chamber Ensembles concert (once in the Fall, once in the Spring), and off-campus performance opportunities may also be available. This ensemble usually performs without a conductor. Membership is open by audition; concurrent enrollment in a parent ensemble (Wind Symphony, Music 112 or Civic Symphony, Music 110) is required. The ensemble has one weekly coaching. The Brass Quintet carries one semester hour of academic credit. Questions regarding the Brass Quintet should be directed to Professor Jennifer Dearden in the Music Department.
