Tennessee Tech University's Brass Arts Quintet, a faculty brass quintet, will present a concert at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 12, in the Wattenbarger Auditorium of the Bryan Fine Arts Building. The show is free and open to the public.

David Rhyne, TTU's newly appointed Director of Choruses and an accomplished organist, will perform two works with the ensemble, Canzon Primi Toini by Giovanni Gabrieli and Praise the Lord with Drums and Cymbals by Siegfried Karg-Elert.

Other pieces to be performed at the evening's event will include a new work from TTU trombone professor Joshua Hauser and the 1989 composition of Seasons by John Stevens, tuba professor at the University of Wisconsin.

"This program should appeal to all who enjoy listening to the stirring sounds of brass instruments and the magnificent sound of the organ,” said Charles Decker, coordinator of the Brass Arts Quintet. "The final two numbers on the program are truly spectacular and will be a concert experience to remember."

The quintet recently released its latest compact disc recording entitled Shazam! They have also appeared in concert specials on national and public broadcast television stations. Members of the Brass Arts Quintet are Charles Decker and Chris McCormick, trumpets; Greg Danner, horn; Joshua Hauser, trombone; and R. Winston Morris, tuba.
