Fine Arts Association presents The Saint Louis Brass Quintet

CORBIN — Special to the Times-Tribune

The Fine Arts Association of Southeastern Kentucky, Inc. presents The Saint Louis Brass Quintet, Tuesday, Sept. 25, 7:30 p.m. at Conway Boatman Chapel, Union College.

Founded in 1964, the Saint Louis Brass Quintet is one of America’s longest standing brass quintets. The SLBQ performs the entire spectrum of music for brass — from today’s composers to Baroque and Renaissance music transcribed for modern instruments. They also offer lighter fare — popular music of the Americas; jazz arrangements of standards by Ellington/Strayhorn, Gershwin and Cole Porter; and a “tongue in cheek” survey of the history of the brass instruments.

The SLBQ sees itself as a serious chamber music group, but also recognizes the importance of education and entertainment in its programming. Finding this balance is an exciting challenge that is vital in keeping both the group’s members and its audiences satisfied.

Individual tickets for the show can be purchased for $30 at the door.

Students receive discounted ticket rates.
