bEAUMONT BRASS QUINTET
The Beaumont Brass is Michigan State University's faculty brass quintet. Formed in 1989, the quintet is named for the Beaumont Tower — an iconic carillon tower located on the MSU campus by the College of Music. The Beaumont Brass has performed throughout Michigan and the Midwest, presenting concerts and clinics in public schools, university concert halls, and churches. The ensemble has also appeared with the Empire Brass and the Canadian Brass. Graduate students who have performed with the quintet have gone on to win positions in the Saint Louis Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Grand Rapids Symphony, Lansing Symphony, United States Marine Band, Ft. Wayne Philharmonic, and at Eastern Michigan University. In 2000, the Beaumont Brass released its first recording, “Christmas at Beaumont Tower” (Mark Records #3609 MCD).
