The Legacy Brass Quintet will present its spring 2016 recital on Tuesday, April 19, beginning at 8:00 p.m. in Gorell Recital Hall in Sutton Hall on the IUP campus. This program is free and open to the general public.

The program features a range of baroque and contemporary music by American and European composers, including Samuel Sheidt, Willem deFesch, and William Brusick. 

The Legacy Brass Quintet is the honors student brass quintet for the IUP Department of Music. Membership in the ensemble is by performance audition and is open to any IUP music major in the brass area. The funding for this ensemble was made possible through a gift from Jim and Jamie Self. Jim Self is an IUP alumnus (BSEd 1965) who has been a first-call tuba player in Los Angeles for over 30 years. He is known for playing the “Voice of the Mother Ship” in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind and has performed for hundreds of movie and television soundtracks in his career, as well as performing as principal tuba in many of the top professional orchestras in and around Los Angeles.
