Founded in 1966, the Western Brass Quintet is one of the most distinguished brass chamber music ensembles still active in the United States today. The ensemble has performed around the world and in such American venues such as the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall.

Committed to promoting the composition of significant works for the brass quintet, the ensemble has premiered numerous works: Welcome to Games for Brass.

The Western Brass Quintet gave unremitting evidence of their individual talents and ensemble training; chords were precisely weighted and registered, instrumental blends were sensitively arranged, and there was rarely a tentatively attacked or released note. –New York Times
