Chicago Symphony Orchestra Brass Quintet
KENNESAW, Ga.—The Kennesaw State University Premiere Series will conclude its 18th season with a rare tour appearance by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Brass Quintet. The concert will take place on April 1 at 3 p.m. in the Performance Hall of the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center.
A musical force in Chicago and around the world, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra has been consistently hailed as one of the finest international orchestras since its founding in 1891. The Orchestra’s expansive catalog of more than 900 recordings has earned 62 Grammy Awards— more than any other orchestra in the world. The Brass Quintet, consisting of horn, trumpet, trombone and tuba, contributes to the CSO's distinctive "Chicago sound" with its rich brass sonorities.
"The Chicago Symphony is known around the world for the quality of its brass section. It has long been a distinctive trademark of the CSO's sound - warm, powerful and triumphant," says David Daly, director of the Bailey Performance Center. "For this concert we have the opportunity to hear these phenomenal players in the much more intimate setting of a quintet, performing a variety of styles of music. It is a superb conclusion to what has been a great season of concerts."
The CSO's Brass Quintet performance will include works by J.S. Bach, Georges Bizet, Aaron Copland, Anthony DiLorenzo and George Gershwin, among others.
Tickets for the concert are $25. Discounts are available for KSU personnel, seniors, military and groups. For more information, visit the KSU box office or call 770-423-6650.
