Since 2004, the Gaudete Brass Quintet has committed itself to presenting serious brass chamber music through compelling concerts, commissioning new works and adventurous recordings. The group has engaged in live performances at venues such as Merkin Hall and Symphony Space in New York City and Millennium Park in Chicago, commissioned new works from noted composers such as David Sampson, Jonathan Newman, John Cheetham, Steven Bryant and Stacy Garrop, and appeared on radio broadcasts on WFMT in Chicago and Nashville Public Radio.

While keeping this rigorous performance schedule, the Quintet has recorded three albums: Brass Outings (2006), winner of the CDBaby Editors’ Choice distinction and nominee for Just Plain Folks Best Classical Chamber Album; Conversations in Time with organist R. Benjamin Dobey (2011, Pro Organa); and Chicago Moves, produced by Grammy winner Judith Sherman and featuring several of its commissioned works (forthcoming 2012, Cedille Records).

In addition to having served as Artists-in-Residence at Carthage College (Kenosha, WI) and presenting composition workshops to young artists at Columbia College and Roosevelt University in Chicago, the quintet has also presented educational programs and concerts at prominent institutions including The Juilliard School, Eastman School of Music, and Vanderbilt University.
