The Art of Fun

Virginia’s own Brass 5 will charm with a lively and fun concert that shines with playful banter and impressive musical range. The virtuosic quintet, with founder Gerald Pope on trumpet, Brian Quakenbush on trumpet, Rodney Overstreet on horn, Ed Griffin on trombone, Robert Chernault on tuba, and Wes Robertson on percussion, play everything from Renaissance, classical, Dixieland, swing and jazz, to rock, country and more. Since 1982, Brass 5 has performed more than 4,000 concerts around the U.S. and Europe, and they have been featured on numerous television and public radio programs, including a live broadcast on National Public Radio. As a result of their commitment to youth musical education across Virginia, Brass 5 has been nominated for the “Governor’s Award for the Arts.”
