|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Emerging as one of the country’s most exciting ensembles, the Synergy Brass Quintet will perform on Tuesday, March 31 as part of the Phillips County 2008-2009 Entertainment Series. Their new and exciting brand of chamber music will be showcased at the 7:30 p.m. concert at Holyoke High School.
Acclaimed for their technical virtuosity, outstanding showmanship and diverse programming, the Synergy Brass Quintet has been bringing music to audiences since 1996. Already in their young career, they have performed across the country and have participated in some of the world’s most prestigious music festivals including the Ravinia Music Festival, the Bethlehem Musikfest, the Tanglewood Festival and the Boston Early Music Festival.
As one of New England’s finest brass groups, these five young men have toured throughout the East Coast and Midwest in the U.S. as well as in major cities such as London, Munich, Prague, Vienna and Moscow in Europe plus Tokyo and Taipei.
Synergy regularly dedicates time to the education of young musicians. Through workshops, clinics, residencies and masterclasses they use their talents to inspire a passion for music in the next generation.
Public schools, colleges and conservatories including The Boston Conservatory, the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, Oklahoma University, Oklahoma State University, the University of Illinois, Mannes College of Music and the Manhattan School of Music are among the places the quintet has presented its music. The five musicians have also served as Quintet-in-Residence at the Boston University Tanglewood Institute.
With its unique sound, the Synergy Brass Quintet will entertain concertgoers with “classical music redefined for a new era.”
In addition to the Synergy Brass Quintet, the Phillips County Arts Council will feature local entertainment prior to the 7:30 concert. Brass musicians from community schools will take the stage at 7:15 p.m.
