Anima Brass is a Baltimore, MD based quintet dedicated to the world of contemporary brass chamber music.

Anima was selected as the 2016 Aspen Music Festival and School Fellowship Brass Quintet, which is perhaps the most competitive and prestigious brass chamber music fellowship in the country. Individually, they have performed with the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Reading Symphony, Westmoreland Symphony, and other ensembles throughout the mid-Atlantic.

This program of music for brass quintet will feature works by diverse composers Jennifer Higdon, Quinn Mason, Ludwig Maurer, and David Sampson, each showcasing the versatility and unique affective power of brass chamber music. Sampson’s major work, “Chesapeake,” musically depicts a mosaic of sailing journeys that the composer took on the Chesapeake Bay in childhood and as an adult. A mix of nostalgia and imagination, the highly programmatic work begins with morning in Annapolis, sails through an imagined historical conflict at Bloody Point, and ends in St. Michaels with a meal and drinks at the Crab Claw.

Admission is free.
