Chestertown – The 58th season of the Washington College Concert Series continues with a performance by the Lyric Brass Quintet in Decker Theatre on Saturday, February 27, at 8 p.m.
Formed in 1998, the Lyric Brass Quintet quickly distinguished itself as one of the premier brass chamber groups in the Mid-Atlantic. As winners of the 2000 Baltimore Chamber Music Competition, they performed at ARTSCAPE, and their debut CD, Daydreams, was released the same year to critical acclaim.
They have been featured artists on the Baltimore Composers’ Forum, the Peggy and Yale Gordon Trust Concert Series, and at the Foxboro Orpheum in Boston.
The Lyric Brass Quintet’s members have appeared as soloists in Eric Ewazen’s concerto grosso Shadowcatcher with the Peabody Wind Ensemble and were featured artists in Virginia’s Catch a Rising Star Concert Series.
The quintet’s second recording, Christmas Around the World, was released in December 2002, and the latest CD from the group, Ancient Noels, came out in fall 2009.
The 2009-2010 Washington College Concert Series will conclude with a performance by pianist Inna Faliks on March 28.
Single admission tickets, available at the box office, are $15 for adults, $5 for youth 18 and under. Decker Theatre is located in Washington College’s new Daniel Z. Gibson Center for the Arts. For more information, call 410/778-7839.
