Collaborations

The Trillium Brass Quintet's special talent and skill for creating new arrangements makes it an ideal ensemble for collaborative projects. Many successful concerts and recordings with choirs, organists and orchestras have come to fruition, to the delight of audiences and presenters alike. Recent projects include an original performance of Mendelssohn's oratorio Elijah for organ and brass, a feature appearance in a symphonic show, and several stirring concerts for organ and brass.

Organ and Brass

The Trillium Brass Quintet has a long history of wide experince of collaborative efforts with organ.  It has been our pleasure to work with many esteemed organists including Christopher Dawes, Michael Bloss, Peter Merrick, Ian Sadler, Frederic DeVries, Thomas Fitches, and Andrew Agar.

Such perfomances are always a partnership, with musical inspirations flowing from pre-exisiting repertoire, or adaptations from other sources.

While we are always happy to explore new repertoire, past repertoire includes:

Bach, Air from Suite no. 3
Litaize, Cort├Ęge
Faure, Requiem (Pie Jesu and Sanctus)
Bales, Festival Fanfare
Vierne, March Triomphale
Peeters, Entrada Festiva
