KALAMAZOO -- WMU's School of Music will present a guest artist recital by the Florida State Brass Quintet on Sunday, Oct. 8. The concert begins at 8 p.m. in the Dalton Center Recital Hall. Admission is free.

The Florida State Brass Quintet, representing the performing artist faculty at Florida State University, was established in 1975. The quintet has performed at many conservatories and universities throughout the United States and has performed in Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall and the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater. Its appearances in Europe (Germany and Italy) include performances by invitation of the Ministry of Culture in Rheinland-Pfalz and the Rekkenzie Brass Quintet.

In addition to maintaining a busy performance schedule as a quintet, the individual members sustain a full-time teaching schedule in the Florida State University School of Music and are involved in numerous other musical activities, including principal positions in the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra. Members of the quintet are Bryan Goff and Scott Beckett (trumpet), Michelle Stebleton (horn), John Drew (trombone), and Paul Ebbers (tuba).
