About

The Motor City Brass Quintet features some of Detroit’s most versatile brass musicians, including members of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra, and Bob Seger's Silver Bullet Band, making the MCBQ an integral part of the diverse musical culture both in Metropolitan Detroit and across the United States.

Members of the Motor City Brass Quintet have also performed with many other top chamber ensembles, including the Canadian Brass, Detroit Chamber Winds, Empire Brass, and Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, and currently serve on the music faculties of Bowling Green State University, the University of Michigan, Western Michigan University, and the University of Toledo.

The Motor City Brass Quintet CD, Christmas Vespers, features the premiere recording of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Harbison’s Christmas Vespers, as well as unique new arrangements of familiar holiday favorites. Additional performance premieres include those of Kevin Beavers’ Three Moods for Brass Quintet (commissioned by the MCBQ in 2010)
