Great Performance Series to
Present Center City Brass Quintet

Posted October 4, 2000

HOLLAND -- Center City Brass Quintet, a group quickly earning praise for setting new standards of artistry on brass instruments, will perform at Hope College through the Great Performance Series on Friday, Oct. 20, at 8 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

The evening will feature works by Malcolm Arnold, Paul Hindemith, Viktor Ewald, Jan Koetsler, Leonard Bernstein, and Anthony DiLorenzo--Center City's own Emmy- award winning composer and trumpet player.

Founded in 1985, the group earned first prize from the Coleman Chamber Music Competition and the Carmel Chamber Music Competition in 1988. Known for their wide range of musical styles as well as their high energy and finely- polished style, they have been praised in the "Cleveland Plain Dealer" for "music that leaves the ears spellbound."

They have recorded two CDs. The most recent, titled "Street Song," features original compositions for brass quintet by Leonard Bernstein, Andre Previn and others. Their first CD, "Brass Quintets," contains standard brass chamber music works. The "American Record Guide" called it "one of the all-time great brass recordings." Concert goers will have the opportunity to purchase CDs and meet the artists at a reception following the performance.

Dimnent Memorial Chapel is located at 12th Street and College Avenue.

Tickets will be available beginning Wednesday, Oct. 18, at the theatre lobby ticket office of the DeWitt Center, and cost $12.50 for regular adult admission, $10.50 for senior citizens and $6.50 for students. Tickets will also be available at the door on the night of the performance.

The DeWitt Center is located at 12th Street and Columbia Avenue. The ticket office will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on October 18-20.

Season subscriptions are also still available for the 2000-01 Great Performance Series, which will also include performances by piano trio The Triple Helix, Saffire-The Uppity Blues Women, classical quartet Quartetto Gelato, Anthony Zerbe and Roscoe Lee Browne in the dramatic performance "Behind the Broken Words," and medieval vocalists Anonymous 4.
