Brass Chamber Ensembles
Overview of Brass Chamber Ensemble Program
The Philharmonic Association has a history of brass ensembles that have complimented the full orchestra experience for our brass participants. These have included large brass and percussion ensembles, brass ensembles, horn quartets, and a brass quintet. We would like to continue with a Triangle Youth Philharmonic Brass Quintet for the 2015 - 2016 season. Quintet members must be dedicated to practicing their parts infdividually, and on their own as a group, to get the maximum benefit from monthly coaching sessions from members of the North Carolina Symphony.
