J50 Brass Profile, Morgensterns Diary Service

j5o Brass in a Brass Quintet based in Greenwich, London. Formed in 2008, the group have since gone on to perform at the 'BBC Good Food Show' and 'Gardener's World Live' (both at Birmingham NEC); charity functions at London Olympia Hilton Hotel and solo concerts across the capital at locations such as Canary Wharf and LSO St Luke's. Their interest in the indigenous folk muisc of Europe led to a programme of arrangements that were premiered at the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble competition, where they finished runners-up. Often than folk music they provide a varied programme of baroque and early music; arrangements of popular classics; jazz and world music and original compositions for brass quintet.

The ensemble are well-known for their comical odd-ball performances which often include choreography, singing and other surprisingly theatrical elements. The group have also participated in education and outreach workshops as part of Trinity's "Raising the Roof" programme around local schools and have since formulated their own workshop programme. They are also interested in the promotion of original music; including contemporary compositions from young composers and unique arrangements by the group.

All of the musicians from the group are freelance players and have played with a wide variety of ensembles outside j5o including: The World Youth Orchestra, European Union Youth Orchestra, Young Musician's Symphony Orchestra, Redbridge Brass Band, Grimethorpe Colliery Band, CBSO Youth Orchestra, Superbrass (RPO Brass Ensemble) and the Young Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra.

The ensemble have recently completed a tour of Denmark where they performed at The Royal Academy of Music (Aarhus), The Academy of Music (Allborg) and with the Aarhus Brass Band in a joint concert. j5o were also in Denmark for the 2011 Aalborg Brass Band Music Competition as the evening entertainment.

The members of the group are:

In the future, they plan to complete a recording of original arrangements for the group, light music and contempoary compositons for brass.
