The Chicago quintet Alliance Brass will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 9, at Cup O Joy auditorium, 525 N. Taylor St., Green Bay.

Alliance Brass consists of Kelly Longenberg, horn; Amy Nelson, trumpet; Jim Longenberg, tuba; Chris O’Hara, trumpet; and Steven Duncan; trombone. Acclaimed as “the perfect blend of virtuosity and vitality” (Chicago Brass Festival), the Alliance Brass has emerged as one of the country’s most exciting ensembles. Dazzling audiences with a repertoire ranging from the early Renaissance to jazz and beyond, the ensemble has performed all over the world from Canada and Mexico to the UK and Japan, and has shared the stage with major orchestras including the Boston, Chicago and Cleveland symphonies. Members have served on faculty at some of the top music institutions including the Boston University Tanglewood Institute, DePaul University, Midwest Young Artists, the International Festival and Institute at Round Top.
