The Tucson Symphony Orchestra Brass Quintet entertains a wide variety of audiences with its versatile repertoire ranging from the Baroque to Broadway and Dixieland Jazz to traditional classics. A brass quintet is the most powerful of the chamber ensembles, and can fill up a hall with its grand sound like an organ. In the hands of these superb musicians, it can also sing soft and sweet, bringing you to the edge of your seat, and get your toes tapping with jazzy tunes to boot. The TSO Brass Quintet has built a loyal fan base with adult and youth audiences across southern Arizona.
