New York Philharmonic Principal Brass Quintet

New York Philharmonic Principal Brass Quintet

The New York Philharmonic Principal Brass Quintet enjoys worldwide exposure and an international reputation. The ensemble’s debut came at the invitation of the Canadian Brass, when the two quintets joined in a 1983 concert in Ottawa, Canada. The two groups have since collaborated at the summer festivals of Tanglewood, Wolf Trap, Great Woods, and Mostly Mozart; with their brass colleagues from the Boston Symphony Orchestra and The Philadelphia Orchestra on five recordings and one educational video; and for performances in cities throughout Canada and the United States. Since 1995 the New York Philharmonic Principal Brass Quintet has hosted an annual New York Philharmonic Holiday Brass concert at Lincoln Center, with the Canadian Brass as its inaugural guest. The Principal Brass Quintet also joined forces with the Salvation Army’s New York Staff Band in two Gala Festivals at Alice Tully Hall in New York City. In addition, the ensemble performed with the Empire Brass at the Carnegie Hall Centennial Gala in May 1991. The New York Philharmonic Principal Brass Quintet has been a regular encore feature on the Orchestra’s tours, with appearances in Europe, South America, Asia, and in the U.S., as well as at the Orchestra’s residencies in Cagliari, Italy and Vail, Colorado; the group also represented the Philharmonic for special occasions such as the opening of the Upper West Side Apple Store (in 2009), the opening of UNIQLO’s Fifth Avenue flagship store (2014), and a free performance at Zurich’s Main Station as part of the Orchestra’s EUROPE / SPRING 2013 tour. The ensemble has performed solo concerts throughout the U.S. and Japan, and in the cities of Luxembourg, Monterrey (Mexico).
