Engaging and eclectic, the Mirari Brass Quintet brings a spirit of joyful collaboration and innovation to music spanning many centuries and genres. The commissioners of multiple new works for brass, the group performs a spectacular tight rope act, balancing intensity with levity and refined virtuosity with pure fun. Founded in 2009, Mirari has performed extensively across the United States, forging connections with audiences through lively and polished performances. In addition to being outstanding performers, the members of the Mirari Brass Quintet share a big passion for music education and are all collegiate professors of music. The group relishes and seeks out extended time to interact with young musicians in masterclasses, group and individual instruction, presenting clinics on brass fundamentals and the art of chamber performance. As a central tenet of the group, and by their name’s definition, all Mirari members share an admiration and respect for each other not only on stage and in music, but also in friendship.
