"They simply have no competition when it comes to the beauty, clarity, accuracy, balance, and interaction of their playing." --The Boston Globe
Empire Brass is one of North America's finest brass quintets, internationally renowned for its brilliant virtuosity and the unparalleled diversity of its repertoire. The group's five musicians--all of whom have held leading positions with major American orchestras--have introduced audiences to the excitement of brass music ranging from Bach and Handel to jazz and Broadway. Last seen at the Kennedy Center over the winter holidays in 2001, Empire Brass returns with another delightful holiday program. The ensemble's holiday concerts combine the classic with the new, covering holiday standards, classical transcriptions, traditional carols, and original arrangements.
