Recitals

The Trillium Brass Quintet has a dynamic stage presentation, a friendly rapport, and performs great music.

We engage a wide spectrum of audience with sincere performances of elegant, unusual, and virtuosic repertoire.

TBQ's wide experience and versatility make it an excellent choice for multiple dates at the same venue - a series once featured TBQ for five concerts in five days, with all different themes (see below).

"The Trillium Brass Quintet is one of the most exciting ensembles to come along in many years. They have tremendous musical diversity and a very polished show which is of the highest professional standard."
