The Howland Chamber Music Circle’s season continues with a performance by the Gaudete Brass Quintet of music from the 16th century to the present. The musicians, Bill Baxtresser and Ryan Berndt, trumpets, Julia Filso, horn, Paul Von Hoff, trombone, and Scott Tegge, tuba, have committed themselves to presenting serious brass chamber music both traditional and contemporary through compelling concerts. They have commissioned new works and have made adventurous recordings.
For its concert at the Howland Center the Quintet has chosen to play works including Copperwave by Joan Tower, 16th century Italian Madrigals by Giaches De Wert, Sonata for Brass Quintet by John Cheetham, ROAR by Jeremy Howard Beck, Canzona Prima by Giovanni Gabrieli, and The Nightingale by Thomas Bateson.
The concert will take place at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13, at the Howland Cultural Center, 477 Main St., Beacon, and will be followed by a reception to meet the artists. Tickets are by subscription and can be reserved by calling 845-297-9243, or visit the Howland Chamber Music Circle website at howlandmusic.org. Single tickets are $30 and $10 for students.
