Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra's Brass Quintet strikes a patriotic chord for the Fourth of July
The fourth entry in AnnArbor.com's free, Friday lunchtime Summer Concert Series brought some of the city's top classical musicians to our corner patio with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra's Brass Quintet.
The quintet celebrated Independence Day by playing patriotic favorites and American standard.
The quintet is led by trombonist Scott Hartley, who has a DMA in trombone performance from the University of Michigan School of Music and has played with the Ann Arbor Symphony for 30 years. He has also been principal trombone of the Pontiac Oakland Symphony for 15 years and subbed with all the area orchestras on a regular basis.
The A2SO Brass Quintet is one of the Symphony’s four Ensembles In Your Classroom, performing for nearly 30,000 students across Southeastern Michigan each year. Each ensemble visit provides students with live, top-quality, classical music in the comfortable setting of their elementary or middle school.
