The Unites States Army Brass Quintet will hold a concert January 28 at Texas State University as part of the School of Music’s Guest Artist Series.
The performance will be at 6 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Recital Hall on campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Since its inception in 1972, the U.S. Army Brass Quintet has gained a reputation as one of the most highly respected and sought after groups of its kind. The ensemble has appeared before audiences and dignitaries in 48 states and 14 foreign countries. An element of the U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own” in Washington, D.C., the U.S. Army Brass Quintet has performed at the White House, presidential inaugurations and official state ceremonies in the Nation’s Capital.
The ensemble has been selected repeatedly to honor new presidents with the traditional “Hail to the Chief” on live national broadcasts. In addition, the U.S. Army Brass Quintet frequently provides musical support for special events hosted by the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of the Army and the Army Chief of Staff.
Seating will begin on a first-come, first-served basis at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the program. Parking is available for $5 in the Edward Gary Street Garage, next to the Performing Arts Center.
