Formed in 1972, the Wisconsin Brass Quintet now performs with UW-Madison Professor of Percussion Anthony DiSanza in a wide range of styles, from classical to jazz to Broadway to commercial music.
Alex Noppe and Matthew Onstad, trumpets; Tom Curry, tuba; Mark Hetzler, trombone; Daniel Grabois, horn; Anthony DiSanza, percussion.
Regarded as one of the “superb brass ensembles in the USA” (Musicweb International) and praised for “remarkable musicianship and versatility” (International Trumpet Guild Journal), the widely acclaimed quintet has maintained a position at the forefront of brass chamber music since the group’s founding in 1972. In addition to its regular concert series on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Quintet performs extensively throughout the Midwest and nationally, including appearances in New York at Weill Recital Hall and Merkin Concert Hall. The quintet is one of three faculty chamber ensembles in-residence at UW-Madison. Deeply committed to the spirit of the Wisconsin Idea, the group also travels widely to offer its concerts and educational services to students and the public in all corners of the state.
