The New England Brass Quintet has been performing to enthusiastic audiences since 1980. The NE Brass Quintet brings Gershwin’s jazzy, finger-snapping ragtime music to life along with his opera “Porgy and Bess” and his applauded melodies from the American songbook. George Gershwin is one of the most prominent American composers – his music spanning both popular and classical genres. NE Brass will also feature a “Tribute to Five Decades of Popular Trumpet Solos”, a world premiere at the historic Larcom. This concert is sponsored, in part, by Bill Hanney’s North Shore Music Theatre.
