Event Description

Mobility Brass Quintet is the newest performing group of the United States Air Force Band of Mid-America. With the traditional instrumentation of two trumpets, French horn, trombone and tuba, the ensemble is known for its versatility and outstanding musicianship.

A component group of the Band of Mid-America, their performance repertoire spans five centuries, from the glorious antiphonal sounds of the Renaissance to the rich diversity of American musical styles. Whether a military march, jazz standard or an original arrangement of patriotic favorites, each Mobility Brass Quintet program is thoughtfully planned for a blend of inspiration and entertainment. Its repertoire has universal appeal and includes special programming for younger audiences.

This ensemble not only performs in concert halls and civic events, but also adds a distinctive presence to official military ceremonies and events of state. These five gifted players proudly represent the skill and professionalism of the United States Air Force as musical ambassadors before military and civilian audiences throughout the band’s ten-state area of responsibility.
