American Brass Quintet performs Saturday, July 14

Salida Aspen Concerts is welcoming back premier chamber ensemble American Brass Quintet for a Saturday, July 14 performance at the Salida High School Auditorium. “American Brass Quintet is an audience favorite, and we’re delighted to see them return for our 42nd season,” said Salida Aspen Concerts president Molly Walker. The five-piece ensemble features Kevin Cobb and Louis Hanzlik on trumpet, Eric Reed on horn, Michael Powell on trombone and John Rojak on bass trombone. The performance will open with a Suite of Elizabethan Dances by English composer Anthony Holborne, whose music dates to the late 1500’s during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The suite will be followed by the works of present day composers Dan Coleman and Philip Lasser. After a brief intermission, the performance will conclude with John Zorn’s Blue Stratagem and David Sampson’s Still. American Brass Quintet’s peformance, underwritten by High Country Bank, is made possible through generous community support and the ongoing partnership between Salida Aspen Concerts partners and the Aspen Music Festival and School. In addition to American Brass Quintet, this year’s must-see lineup includes performances from the Center for Advanced Quartet Studies, Anton Nel and Leonard Bernstein’s one-act opera, Trouble in Tahiti. Tickets are $15 for adults, with free admittance for students. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., followed by a pre-concert talk at 6:45 p.m. and the main performance at 7:30 p.m. Tickets and more information are available at
