A professional brass musical group will perform at Saginaw Valley State University later this week.
Quintasonic Brass will visit campus Saturday, Feb. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in SVSU's Rhea Miller Recital Hall. The performance is free and open to the public.
The group features trumpeters Vincent DiMartino and Jason Dovel, horn player Matthew Haislip, trombonist Alex van Duuren and tuba player Alex Lapins.
Saturday’s planned program features musical selections composed as early as the 18th century and as recent as this century.
The quintet began performing together in 2016, but the musicians began collaborating with each other for years prior to the group's formation. All five players also work as educators at colleges and universities across the U.S.: DiMartino at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky; Dovel at University of Kentucky; Haislip at Mississippi State University; Duuren at University of Tennessee; and Lapins at University of Tennessee.
