Nationally-known and Bowling Green-based brass ensemble The Tower Brass Quintet will join organist Kevin McGill for a concert of organ and brass on Sunday at 4 p.m. in the sanctuary at St. Mark's Lutheran Church, 315 S. College St., Bowling Green.
The concert will mark the beginning of the ensemble's 35th season.
The eclectic program will include organ and brass works by Karg-Elert, Richard Strauss, and Handel, as well as an antiphonal setting of Giovanni Gabrielli's " Canzon Duo Decimi Toni."
The quintet will perform Bramwell Tovey's  "Santa Barbara Sonata," "Scherzo" by Karl Pilss  and an arrangement of Saint-Saens' "Pas Redouble." Members of the Tower Brass Quintet are Brian Bushong and Charles Saenz, trumpets; Bernice Schwartz, horn; Dan Saygers, trombone; and David Saygers, tuba.
The ensemble began as a graduate student ensemble at Bowling Green State University and in 1986 with a prize-winning performance at the International Brass Chamber Music Competition in Barcs, Hungary. Since then it has toured both in the United States and internationally.
Tower Brass has released seven recordings, the most recent "Snowed In - Again."
