Memphis Brass Quintet

Memphis Brass Quintet

The Memphis Brass Quintet is the professional brass ensemble at the University of Memphis' Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music.

Founded in 1993, the Memphis Brass Quintet features distinguished faculty members that bring a wide range of performing experiences to the ensemble. This experience reflects a varied repertoire that includes Renaissance and Baroque transcriptions, jazz arrangements, and contemporary works for brass quintets. With performances in Memphis, Tennessee, and around the US, the MBQ has developed a reputation for outstanding artistic concert presentations. The group also has a keen interest in education and regularly presents clinics and masterclasses to students of all levels.
