Wisconsin Brass Quintet to Perform

Jan 4, 2023

The Arts Council of South Wood County is honored to present Wisconsin Brass Quintet (WBQ) on Thursday, February 2, at 7:30 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center of Wisconsin Rapids, 1801 16th Street South. Regarded as one of the “superb brass ensembles in the USA” by Musicweb International and praised for “remarkable musicianship and versatility” by International Trumpet Guild Journal, WBQ has maintained a position at the forefront of brass chamber music since the group’s founding in 1972.

American Record Guide reviewer Barry Kilpatrick writes: “The WBQ is a remarkable ensemble that plays with more reckless abandon, warmth, stylistic variety, and interpretive interest than almost any quintet in memory.”

In demand for its engaging educational programs and master classes, we are fortunate to have WBQ hold a master class at the Performing Arts Center at 3:00 p.m. the afternoon of the performance. Mead Witter Foundation is sole sponsor of this outreach. Any high school band or orchestra students in the area who might be interested in attending and have not yet been made aware of this opportunity, please contact The Arts Council at 715.424.2787 for details.

Tickets for the evening performance are $25 for adults and $10 for students. Purchase them 24/7 at Call 715.424.2787 or visit The Arts Council at 1040 8th Street South, Suite 101, Wisconsin Rapids, between 10:00 and 2:30 Monday through Thursday for personal assistance.
