Date: 02/04/2013

Time: 3:35 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: Lloyd Ultan Recital Hall - Ferguson Hall

Cost: Free


Today’s professional musicians are not just creative performers, they’re also creative entrepreneurs. In this concert/panel discussion, Minnesota’s own Copper Street Brass Quintet performs the “greatest hits” from their touring show The Evolution of the Brass Quintet and presents a panel discussion about the business of music and arts entrepreneurship. 

For those students who are interested in a career in the arts, this discussion provides tools and ideas for getting started. Topics include selecting a business structure, networking and freelancing, presenting educational outreach programs, and finding balance between creating art and running a business.

About The CSBQ:

These five brilliant young musicians may have dozens of recitals, a few hundred jazz gigs and countless concerts between them, but they’ve also got style, substance, and a flair for innovation. Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2007, The Copper Street Brass Quintet set up shop in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2008 where, through their inventive concerts, engaging classroom programs, and a host of original arrangements, they’ve transcended the brass quintet box and evolved into something fresh.

The CSBQ’s tour program, “The Evolution of the Brass Quintet”, has been a hit in communities across the country. This exciting show features music from Mozart to Dave Brubeck to Adele, and has wowed audiences with its innovative blend of musical styles and dazzling fusion of electronic effects with breathtaking brass.

As devoted educators, The CSBQ spends much of its time in schools sharing their energy and passion with students from kindergarten to college. With expertise in classroom teaching as well as individual instruction, the group’s dynamic residency packages were a hit with over 4,300 students in 25 schools visited last year alone.
