To say the performers are spectacular and technical musical wizards is an understatement…left nothing more to be desired. ~ Charleston Today
Musically, the quintet is at the top of its game! Known for their exciting classical arrangements and original repertoire, this brass quintet is an established one-of-a-kind musical experience. They create a show filled with lively humor and personality, which will delight audiences and make for a perfect way to enjoy your Easter Sunday.
“Every instrument had solo moments to confirm the excellence of the musicians. Verdict? All were remarkable artists.” ~ Kalamazoo Gazette
