About The Smoky Mountain Brass Quintet
Cultural ambassadors building international relationships through music.
Since its founding in 1993, the Smoky Mountain Brass Quintet has performed throughout the United States in venues such as Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and internationally with tours of Russia, the United Kingdom, China, Germany, Jamaica, Prague, Hungary, Romania, Mexico, and South Africa.
The Quintet performs a wide variety of music ranging from Classical to Jazz, and Patriotic to Pop.
In addition, works commissioned from regional composers for the Quintet have expanded the repertoire for all brass quintets.
The group dedicates time to the education of young musicians. Whether through mini-residencies, master-classes or our “instrument petting zoo” for elementary school children, members of the SMBQ use their talents to inspire tomorrow’s musicians.
Many New Friends!
