  • Description

    The University of Kentucky (UK) Faculty Brass Quintet is the in-residence brass chamber ensemble in the UK School of Music. Consisting of the UK brass faculty plus one graduate trumpet teaching assistant, at present its members are Jason Dovel (trumpet), Madison Barton (trumpet), Margaret Tung (horn), Bradley Kerns (trombone), and Matthew Hightower (tuba). In 2021, the group released its first compact disc, New Music for Brass Quintet, which was a result of an international call for scores that yielded nearly 200 submissions. The ensemble has toured Russia and recently performed at the Kentucky Music Educators Association Conference, North American Composers Forum, National Trumpet Competition, and at the Great American Brass Band Festival. Committed to education and outreach, the quintet tours regularly and has recently taught and performed at Louisiana State University, University of Georgia, University of Arkansas, Northeastern State University, University of Alabama, Indiana University, Ball State University, Vanderbilt University, the University of Tennessee, Murray State University, and at numerous public and private secondary schools in Kentucky and surrounding states. Members of the group also serve as faculty sponsors of numerous award-winning student chamber groups in the School of Music.
