Acclaimed in Bostonia Magazine as “one of the nation’s finest chamber ensembles,” the Beacon Brass Quintet was the first brass ensemble ever to win the prestigious Concert Artists Build Award. The Beacon Brass has performed throughout the United States, on radio and television including recording the theme music for “The Advocates” for PBS. In addition to concert venues, the Beacon Bras has been featured at prestigious special events including a Carnegie Hall recital, the opening ceremonies of the John F. Kennedy Library, and the centennial dinner for the members of the Boston Civic Symphony.

 

The Beacon Brass is noted for their expertise across a wide spectrum of music presenting nine world premier performances and commissioning several new works including Scott Wheeler’s Brass Quintet. In recent years, the Beacon Brass has been featured in lecture and recitals with famed Boston Pops conductor, Keith Lockhart.
