Michigan Chamber Brass

 

continued

well played for at least a couple of hours. Even brass quintet music, the bastard child of military music and concert music, has its range, subtleties, and repertoire.

As with every other kind of music, there is good and bad brass band music. And as with every other kind of music, there are good and bad brass quintets. Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Climb Every Mountain" played by the Moosomin Volunteer Fire Department Brass Quintet would no doubt be an abomination, but Victor Ewald's Brass Quintet no. 3 played by the Michigan Chamber Brass is simply good music well played.

It just so happens that the Michigan Chamber Brass, the best brass quintet in southeast Michigan, has included Ewald's Brass Quintet no. 3 in its program for Chelsea Musical Celebrations held on Sunday, March 28. For those not familiar with Chelsea Musical Celebrations, it is a splendid concert series presenting internationally recognized musicians who live in southeast Michigan; they perform in the very warm and reverberant acoustics of the First Congregational Church of Chelsea. The series has already presented, among others, the brilliant piano and violin duo of Arthur Greene and Solomia Soroka, and later this season it will host the swinging sounds of James Dapogny's Chicagoans. And right in the middle of the season, Chelsea Musical Celebrations will present Ann Arbor's own Michigan Chamber Brass.
