The University of Nebraska Brass Quintet will present a Fall Recital on November 28 at 7:30 p.m. in Kimball Recital Hall. The quintet is performing music by composers we know and music by composers who are new to us. We will premier Scott Quackenbush’s transcription of Jean Sibelius’ Andante Festivo as well as a new original composition by Patrice Caratini titled Passages. Passages demonstrates one if the most effective uses of jazz harmony in the classical brass quintet that we have ever encountered. In addition, we will revisit an old friend in Jan Koetsier. This time we will perform Quintetto Lirico. This is a rarely performed work that is both lyrical and virtuosic. The University of Nebraska Brass Quintet is comprised of faculty members Scott Quackenbush and K. Craig Bircher on trumpet, Alan Mattingly on horn, Scott Anderson on trombone and tubist Craig Fuller.

The University of Nebraska Brass Quintet is comprised of faculty from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
