Brass Quintet to Close Out Lyceum Season

The Saint Louis Brass will conclude this year’s abbreviated Kohlenberg Lyceum Series with a performance at 7:30 p.m. April 3 in the Ophelia Parrish Performance Hall.

Founded in 1964, the Saint Louis Brass is one of America’s longest-standing brass quintets. Although the Saint Louis Brass may look formal when they appear on stage, audiences are pleasantly surprised at the relaxed and fun atmosphere they create. With extraordinary grace, the ensemble transforms classical chamber music into a thoroughly enjoyable musical experience.

Originally formed by members of the St. Louis Symphony to play children’s concerts, the quintet soon expanded to full-length concerts. They have performed at locations throughout the country, as well as internationally.

Tickets are $5 each and are on sale now. They can be purchased at Edna Campbells in downtown Kirksville, the cashiers window in McClain Hall or online at

Due to the renovation of Baldwin Hall, this year’s Kohlenberg Lyceum Series was moved to Ophelia Parrish, and the schedule included three events. The series will return to Baldwin Hall in the fall with a full slate of events. The schedule will be announced in late summer, and season tickets will be available for purchase at that time.
