Mirari Brass Quintet to appear in concert

JOHNSON CITY – The Mirari Brass Quintet will present a concert of newly commissioned works, classics and original arrangements of jazz standards in a concert sponsored by the East Tennessee State University Department of Music on Saturday, Feb. 8.

The free public performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 105 S. Boone St. Earlier that day, members of the ensemble will conduct master classes for ETSU music students.

The Mirari Brass Quintet, founded in 2009 in Bloomington, Ind., is comprised of five friends who "truly believe in the intrinsic value of music in our world," according to tuba player Dr. Stephanie Frye, an instructor of tuba and euphonium at ETSU.  The group has toured the United States, performing at concert halls, schools and churches and holding clinics and residencies at numerous colleges and universities.

Members of the group now teach at universities in Arkansas, Idaho, Ohio and Tennessee, and have performed with symphonies in such cities as Charlotte, N.C.; Kansas City; Reno, Nev.; Paducah, Ky.; Indianapolis; Columbus, Ohio; Fountain City, Kan.; and Richmond, Va.

In addition to Frye, members include Alex Noppe and Matt Vangjel, trumpet; Jessie Thoman, horn; and Sarah Paradis, trombone.
