Five of Australia’s finest brass players come together to perform with exceptional artistry. The Australian Brass Quintet are dedicated to presenting creative and engaging programs including established masterpieces, innovative new works for the modern brass quintet and collaborations with local and international artists.
Street Song- From the electrifying rhythms of Bernstein’s West Side Story to the reflective songs of love and loss by sixteenth century Spanish composer Juan de Encina, Street Song is a celebration of songs popular and little known from around the world and across the ages.
