Internationally recognized chamber music ensemble the American Brass Quintet will join West Liberty University for two special performances, Oct. 25-26. Both concerts are free and open to the public.

The American Brass Quintet will perform with the WLU Wind Ensemble, directed by Matthew Inkster, professor of music, in a special concert at the new J.B. Chambers Performing Arts Center, Wheeling Park High School, at 7:30 p.m., Oct. 25. Both the Young Patriots choral group and the Wheeling Park High School Band will be featured in this performance.

The American Brass Quintet will perform again, in Elbin Auditorium, College Hall, West Liberty, at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 26. This concert features the American Brass Quintet solo.

"We are proud to host the American Brass Quintet and invite all music lovers to join us for one or both of these shows. West Liberty has a history of excellence in music education and we are especially pleased to perform at Wheeling Park High School on their new stage," Inkster said, who has been with WLU for nine years and is a resident of Wheeling.

Now in its 51st season, the American Brass Quintet is an icon in the brass world. Its rich history includes performances in Europe, Central and South America, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and all 50 of the United States.
