St. Louis Brass Quintet
Members of the Saint Louis Symphony formed the Saint Louis Brass Quintet (SLBQ) in 1964. Today, thirty-five years and more than 2,500 concerts later, the SLBQ is entertaining audiences nation wide. The SLBQ is comprised of Allan Dean; Trumpet, Tim Morrison; Trumpet, Thomas Bacon; Horn, Melvyn Jernigan; Trombone, and Daniel Perantoni; Tuba. The Saint Louis Brass Quintet performs the entire spectrum of great music for brass - from the works of today's composers to Baroque and Renaissance music transcribed for modern instruments. They also offer lighter fare: popular music of the Americas, jazz arrangements of standards by Ellington/Strayhorn, Gershwin, and Cole Porter. The SLBQ sees itself foremost as a serious chamber music group, but also recognizes the importance of education and entertainment in its programming. Finding this balance is an exciting challenge that is vital in keeping both the group's members and its audiences satisfied.
