Synergy Brass Quintet performs more concerts than anyone in classical music today, averaging nearly 300 engagements per year. Acclaimed for “a veritable fireworks display of outstanding musical ability combined with superb showmanship” (Door Concerts, Inc) in addition to “blazing precision [and] amazing technique” (The Watertown Daily Times), the Synergy Brass Quintet has emerged as one of the world’s most exciting ensembles. Synergy has hit on a magical approach...unadulterated exuberance, and a rock star approach of performing, Their engagements have taken them to every corner of the United States including the Ravinia Music Festival in Illinois, the Bethlehem Musikfest in Pennsylvania, the Tanglewood Music Festival in Massachusetts, and internationally at the Festival de Musica de Camara de Aguascalientes. And, after hearing the ensemble at Tanglewood in 2003, Samuel Adler invited the Synergy Brass Quintet to perform on the premiere recording of his Transfiguration: An Ecumenical Mass. Synergy is often heard on National Public Radio, and in 2005 they broadcast on NBC with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
“We are just so pleased to have them,” said Kim Gattle Gielen of the Opera House. “They are one of the busiest bands in the world. And for them to perform during the Christmas season is a gift for the entire family.”
The show is being sponsored by the Grand Opera House of the South, The Moody Company Foundation, and the Rice Palace of Crowley.
