Named after the galaxy nearest our own, Andromeda Quintet is committed to excellence, while exploring the expressive and technical possibilities of the brass quintet. Comprised of five of Boston's most dynamic musicians and educators, the Quintet offers adventurous listening for all ages. They have performed across the United States and were recently featured on the All Newton Music School faculty recital series and perform outreach and educational programs.

This weekend's program spotlights women composers Jennifer Higdon & Lauren Bernofsky; Ewazen's Colchester Fantasy, evoking Colchester England with its Roman wall and Norman castle, with each movement named for a local pub; Kamen's warm and noble Quintet; John Cheetam's Scherzo, evocative of old Wild West film scores; and Morley Calvert's Suite from the Monteregian Hills, based on French-Canadian folk songs, with a title inspired by the eight mountains ranging in an arc from Mount Royal in Montreal south to the American border.
