Kohler, Wis. (November 20, 2017) – Performing to acclaim worldwide for more than 50 years, the Chicago Brass Quintet will play holiday favorites as part of the Arts at the Waelderhaus series at 3:00 p.m. on December 10.
The Chicago Brass Quintet was formed to promote the appreciation and enjoyment of brass chamber music through performances, educational workshops, broadcasts, recordings, and commissioning new works.
During their first decade the quintet’s energies were devoted to educational concerts in and around the Chicago metropolitan area, exploring new repertoire for the brass quintet in the form of original works for brass, and arrangements of classic compositions adaptable for brass.
Today, the quintet continues to maintain an active touring and recording schedule including recitals, guest performances with symphony orchestras, and a wide variety of programs.
The Chicago Brass Quintet is composed of Ross Beacraft, trumpet; Matt Lee, trumpet; Dan O’Connel, horn; Adam Moen, trombone; and Dan Anderson, tuba.Waelderhaus ScheduleThe Arts at the Waelderhaus series offers an array of cultural events throughout the year, located at 1100 Riverside Drive, Kohler, Wis.
