Over numerous trips to Japan, the group has become active in seminars for conservatory students from around the globe. The Center City Brass Quintet has been featured on radio and television broadcasts across the U.S. including NPR’s Performance Today and, in Japan, on Tokyo FM.

Recording on the Chandos label, the group presents works from the standard brass quintet repertoire as well as original arrangements, which span from Bach to Bernstein.

Called by American Record Guide, “a virtuoso outfit which plays like none other,” and by Gramophone as, “an exquisitely blended ensemble,” CCBQ will present the final concert of the Tryon Concert Association (TCA) season, April 12, 2014 at the Tryon Concert Fine Arts Center.
