Nautilus Brass Quintet
Firmly committed to the creation and performance of new works for brass instruments, the Nautilus Brass Quintet (NBQ) has established itself as a premier new music ensemble. Since its founding in 2010, the NBQ has premiered over 23 works through collaborations with commissioning partners such as New York City’s “Vox Novus” and the Women Composers Festival of Hartford, as well as maintaining an open call for scores from composers around the world.
NBQ strives to proliferate accessibility to cultivated brass chamber music through educational partnerships that have included the University of Connecticut, San Jose State University, Virginia Commonwealth University, and the Ossen Fund for the Arts, among others.
The members of NBQ hail from various paths within the music industry including symphony orchestras, teaching studios, and concert production, but their synergy when together as a chamber ensemble is undeniable and an exhilarating experience in live performance.
