Formed in 1998, The Lyric Brass Quintet (Elisa Koehler and Kevin Dines, trumpets; Larry Williams, horn; Brandon Rivera, trombone; and Andrew Spang, tuba) quickly distinguished itself as one of the premier brass chamber groups in the region. As winners of the 2000 Baltimore Chamber Music Competition, they performed at ARTSCAPE, Baltimore's Festival of the Arts, and their debut CD, Daydreams, Desires and Diversions, was released the same year to critical acclaim. They have been featured artists on the Baltimore Composer's Forum, the Peggy and Yale Gordon Trust Concert Series, and at the Foxboro Orpheum in Boston. They have appeared as soloists in Eric Ewazens concerto grosso, Shadowcatcher, with the Peabody Wind Ensemble and were featured artists on Virginia's Catch a Rising Star Concert Series. LBQ's second recording, Christmas Around the World, was released in December 2002.
