The Sunrise Brass Quintet, a Portland, ME based brass quintet, was founded in 1992 by a group of musicians who had been hired to play an Easter morning service at a local beach. The group decided to formalize it's existence by naming itself for the venue and the occasion of that morning. The present members of the group have been together since 1997. The group rehearses regularly, preparing a wide variety of musical styles to present at concerts, weddings, receptions, benefits, church services, and other festive occasions. The group's members are as follows: Martin Naas â?? First trumpet Bob Filgate â?? Second Trumpet Seth Blank â?? Horn Jon Hall â?? Tenor Trombone and Euphonium Jeff Ertman â?? Bass Trombone The making of our first CD has been an educational and rewarding challenge. We hope that you enjoy the selections we have included on this disc.
