The New York Philharmonic Principal Brass Quintet, comprising the principal brass players of the Orchestra, enjoys worldwide exposure and an international reputation. The group made its debut in 1983 when they joined with The Canadian Brass for a concert in Ottawa, Canada. This was the beginning of a regular musical collaboration between these two brass quintets, with subsequent joint performances at the summer festivals of Tanglewood, Wolf Trap, Great Woods, and Mostly Mozart; concerts in cities throughout Canada and the United States; and on four recordings. The members of the ensemble have also joined their brass colleagues from the Boston Symphony Orchestra and The Philadelphia Orchestra. The Principal Brass Quintet has hosted an annual Holiday Concert at Avery Fisher Hall since 1995. Joining as guests on this extravaganza have been the Lee Musiker Trio; the Canadian Brass; the German Brass; the West Point Brass, Percussion, and Vocalists; Sesame Street’s Bob McGrath; and the Salvation Army’s New York Staff Band.
