The Symphony Brass Quintet was started in 2006 by Eric Farrenkopf and Norm Campbell as a way to bring chamber music as interpreted by brass instruments to Tulare County and its surrounding area. While the quintet has featured a wide number of valley musicians, the core members are all members of the Tulare County Symphony Orchestra and the Tule British Brass Band of Tulare. The Quintet has provided music for a wide variety of events including: weddings, dinner parties, retirements, memorials, Music on Main Street-Visalia, 1st Arts Visalia, and other chamber music concerts.
These players have delighted audiences for the past several years, playing a combination of new and standard selections arranged for brass instruments. Porterville College is located at 100 East College Avenue in Porterville. For additional information, please call the PC music office at (559) 791-2255.
