Unlike any other brass quintet performing today, the Center City Brass Quintet utilizes a unique formula of combining top American soloists and orchestral players into an ensemble which convenes regularly for chamber music making of the highest caliber. Its all-star roster includes members of the Cleveland Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony and Buffalo Philharmonic and players who have performed as soloists with noted ensembles such as the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Boston Pops, Aukland Philharmonic and The U.S. Army Band (Pershing’s Own). In addition, each member of the quintet is a devoted teacher with ties to major collegiate music programs. Called “one of the strongest of today’s brass quintets”, and “a virtuoso outfit which plays like no other” by American Record Guide, the Center City Brass Quintet is known world-wide by its highly acclaimed recordings on the Chandos label.

Working around the many commitments of each of its members, the Quintet presents a limited number of recitals throughout the U.S. each year. Past seasons have brought the quintet to cities across the United States including Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Cleveland, Baltimore, Boise and Eugene. As part of its regular activities,the Quintet also presents master classes and workshops at university programs around the country, helping to inspire a new generation of aspiring brass students. In 2006 the Center City Brass Quintet performed as soloist with the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo in the world-premiere of Chimera, a concerto for brass quintet and orchestra composed by CCBQ trumpeter Anthony DiLorenzo.

This followed numerous prior trips to Japan, where – since 2001 – the quintet has joined an international performance faculty in residence at the Music Masters Course in Kazusa, a seminar for conservatory students from around the globe. The quintet takes its name from the famous downtown district of Philadelphia, in which it was founded in 1985 at the Curtis Institute of Music. Winners at the Coleman and Carmel chamber music competitions, the group has been featured on numerous live radio and television broadcasts across the U.S., including NPR’s Performance Today, and in Japan on Tokyo FM.
