U.S. Army Brass Quintet Performs for Appreciative Audience

The Howard County Concert Odyssey was delighted to host the U.S. Army Brass Quintet on Sunday, September 17, at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Ellicott City, Maryland, in a free concert. The Quintet delighted the large crowd with their wonderful performance.

The U.S. Army Brass Quintet has gained a reputation as one of the most highly respected and sought after music performance teams in the military. The ensemble’s entertaining style and varied repertoire has dazzled audiences and dignitaries in forty-eight states and fifteen foreign countries.

Affectionately known as the “B5”, the quintet performs regularly at significant national events and ceremonies throughout the nation’s capital. As the musical backdrop of choice by the highest levels of military and governmental leadership, the quintet is often hosted by the department of defense, the state department, and the white house.

The “B5” is equally proud of their deep commitment to music education, regularly performing at colleges and conservatories across the nation to promote awareness of musical opportunities in the military.
