The Maritime Brass Quintet Recital
The Maritime Brass Quintet recital on November 2 will feature music from across five centuries, including Airs and Dances by Renaissance composer Anthony Holborne, Victor Ewald’s Brass Quintet No. 1, an arrangement of Gustav Holst’s Second Suite in F (originally for wind ensemble), Canadian composer Morley Calvert’s Three Dance Impressions, Björk’s Overture from Dancer in the Dark and more.

The Maritime Brass Quintet brings the highest caliber chamber music to concert halls, churches, festivals and schools across the Maritimes. The group is comprised of five of Canada’s finest brass players, Curtis Dietz and Richard Simoneau (trumpet), Gina Patterson (horn); and two UPEI alumni, Dale Sorensen (trombone) and Bob Nicholson (tuba, bass trombone). The Brass Quintet members have studied throughout North America and performed or held positions with many of Canada’s leading ensembles.
