Gaudete Brass Quintet

Recently I had a chance to sit down and have a long discussion followed by lunch with Scott Tegge the tuba player from the Chicago based Gaudete Brass Quintet. This young and energetic group is quickly emerging as one of the great brass ensembles in the Chicago area and they are on the fast track to become one of the most respected brass quintets around.
Having commissioned roughly about 40 new pieces for brass quintet, the goal of the GBQ is to "present serious brass chamber music through compelling concerts, to commission new works and release adventurous recordings."
Please check out their recordings ( three so far ) and support them as they are actively contributing to the ever needed brass quintet repertoire.
