Wisconsin Brass Quintet


Friday, March 29th at 7:30pm; at the United Presbyterian-Congregational Church in Ashland

Formed in 1972, the Wisconsin Brass Quintet now performs with UW-Madison Professor of Percussion Anthony DiSanza in a wide range of styles, from classical to jazz to commercial music.

Regarded as one of the superb brass ensembles in the USA and praised for remarkable musicianship and versatility, the widely acclaimed Wisconsin Brass Quintet has maintained a position at the forefront of brass chamber music since the group’s founding in 1972. In addition to its regular concert series on the campus of UW-Madison, the quintet performs extensively throughout the Midwest and nationally. The quintet is one of three faculty chamber ensembles-in-residence at UW-Madison. Deeply committed to the spirit of the Wisconsin Idea, the group travels widely to offer its concerts and educational services to students and the public in all corners of the state. Current members are Alex Noppe and Matthew Onstad, trumpets; Tom Curry, tuba; Mark Hetzler, trombone; and Daniel Grabois, horn.
