Brass Quintet to Visit Campus

Mirari Brass Quintet will be on campus Feb. 25 to host a master class and perform a concert.

The master class, which is open to observers, will begin at 3:30 p.m. in Ophelia Parrish 2340 and feature three student groups.

At 8 p.m. the quintet will perform a concert in Ophelia Parrish Performance Hall. Engaging and eclectic, the Mirari Brass Quintet brings a spirit of joyful collaboration and innovation to music spanning many centuries and genres. The commissioners of multiple new works for brass, the group performs a spectacular tightrope act, balancing intensity with levity and refined virtuosity with pure fun.

The group is composed of five friends who joined together over a common belief in the intrinsic value of music in the world.

The Upsilon Phi chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia is sponsoring Mirari’s visit as part of their ongoing project to encourage chamber music performance and listening. This is the second such event; last year they brought the Prokofiev Ensemble, a chamber group composed of members of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, for master classes and a concert.

In addition to the Upsilon Phi chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, this event is sponsored by the Department of Music and the School of Arts and Letters.
