Gainesville Brass Quintet


Excellence since 1985, the Gainesville Brass Quintet performs the best in light classics, pop, swing, musicals, and for the purist, serious quintet literature from the Baroque through the modern eras.   

As North Florida's premier brass quintet, the GBQ performs for ceremonies, patriotic celebrations, weddings, church services, public concerts, educational concerts, and any other occasion where the glorious sound of brass helps make the event a most memorable one. 


Selection from Wilhelm Ramsoe, Opus No. 2, arranged for brass quintet


"Thank you, GBQ, for your great service to the University of Florida commencement ceremonies for almost a decade. It has been a pleasure working with such great musical professionals. Keep up the great work.

"Thanks so much, GBQ, for your continued participation as the live musicians for UF Commencements. You're timely, professional and dedicated. 

We appreciate you."

~ Steph McBride, UF

"Thank you for your part in the magnificent Horns and Pipes concert... Horns and Pipes would not be an authentic legitimate Gainesville Concert without the presence of the Gainesville Brass Quintet. The concert was well received by all who attended."

~ Mark Coffey, Director of Music and Organist, First Presbyterian Church
