As a brass quintet, Spectacle Brass has performed around the country, including at the Crested Butte Music Festival and the 2013 Calvin Smith Brass Quintet Competition. The ensemble has presented two world premieres at the Kennesaw Festival of New Music and has performed in churches and performance venues throughout the Southeast, including the Cobb Energy Centre, Bailey Performance Center, and Cox Auditorium at the University of Tennessee.

Standard Musical Selections (Listed by Event Type)

All selections listed below are readily available in our music library and we would be happy to program any of these during your booking of the quintet.

Additionally, each contract provides for up to two selections that are not on this list (just send us a recording and/or sheet music and our staff arranger will transcribe the music for the group to perform).

If you need assistance choosing selections, call or email and let us know what your interests are for you and your guests. For example, one wedding couple loved Star Trek, so we arranged the Star Trek theme for their ceremony.

Lastly, if you would like to hear any particular selection, we invite you to join us at one of our rehearsals or Skype with us as we play through what you have chosen. YouTube can also be helpful if you simply need to hear what a particular tune sounds like.

Thank you for choosing Spectacle Brass, and we look forward to playing for you soon!

    An absolutely incredible group! I've had a number of brass quintets at events before, specifically at weddings that I plan, and Spectacle Brass was by far the most responsive and exciting one yet. They work one-on-one with you to select music, and they even offered the opportunity to attend one of their rehearsals. Highly recommended!!
