KLAIPĖDA BRASS QUINTET
Klaipėda Brass Quintet has been successfully creating and performing for three decades starting with 1986. A fine ensemble of professional players performs in various places. It manages to find a way to the hearts of the audience that has different musical experience. The artists create a cosy atmosphere and often spice up their performances with playful staging. The steering wheel of the Klaipėda Brass Quintet is entrusted to the mettlesome new artistic director, trumpeter Sigitas Petrulis, who is unafraid to tackle any artistic challenges with the help of two remaining members – trumpeter Alius Maknavičius and trombonist Steponas Sugintas who has remained in the ensemble since its inception. The new members include French horn player Monika Miliauskienė and tubist Vidmantas Liasis.
The repertoire of Klaipėda Brass Quintet is substantial, covering composers from Renaissance to 21st century.
The sound of the brass instruments spreads the word about Klaipėda both in Lithuania and abroad.
