American Brass Quintet

Members of ABQ pose with instuments.

Internationally recognized as one of the premier chamber music ensembles of our time, American Brass Quintet has been hailed by Newsweek as “the high priests of brass.” ABQ's rich history includes performances in Asia, Australia, Central and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and all 50 of the United States; a discography of nearly 60 recordings; and the premieres of more than 150 contemporary brass works. Committed to the promotion of brass chamber music through education, the American Brass Quintet has been in residence at The Juilliard School since 1987 and the Aspen Music Festival and School since 1970.

For this matinee concert, ABQ brings a program that features a new work by acclaimed American composer Jennifer Higdon and, of course, large brass works.
