The Chrysalis Brass Quintet

The second Winter Concert from The Arts Council of the Twin Counties features the Chrysalis Brass Quintet from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.  Formed in the fall of 2015 as a part of the Chrysalis Chamber Music Institute, the Chrysalis Brass Quintet is the premier brass ensemble at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Along with performances on campus, they have performed numerous outreach programs within the Piedmont Triad Area and across North Carolina and Virginia. The quintet promotes brass playing through performing a mix of standard brass ensemble repertoire and arrangements of well-known folk, jazz, and pop tunes. Thanks to a partnership with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the quintet has been coached by artists such as Stiletto Brass, the President’s Own Marine Corps Brass Quintet, and Ida Bieler.  The group includes Chris Williams, Lousson Smith, Brittany Thomas, Daniel Kane, and C.J. Luke. They will perform old and new works by Ingolf Dahl, Robert Nagel, Giovanni Gabrieli, and various other composers.

The 2017 Winter Concert Series features musicians from Radford University and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, The Winter Concert Series is a series of FREE Sunday afternoon concerts at the Historic 1908 Courthouse in Independence. The 2017 Concerts will begin on Sunday, January 29th at 3pm; donations are gratefully accepted at the door and the audience is welcome to stay after the performance for a reception with the artists.
